REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER 

To The Honohaulk Ciiaikmax and 
Members of the State Roads Commission: 

The biennial operating report of the Chief Engineer for the period October 1, 
1940 to September 30, 1942, is submitted herewith and the reports of the Assistant 
Chief Engineer, the District luigineers, and the Engineers in charge" of the several 
departments, are submitted in the following chapters. 

Reports for the years 1938 to 1940 inclusive referred to the beginning of a ])eriod 
of transition from the Commission's normal operating procedure into methods and 
practices in keeping with the needs of the nation on the verge of preparing itself 
for war. This report carries us through the transition period and into the period 
of emergency following the declaration of war December 7, 1941, with the conse- 
quent governmental restrictions and frequent changing regulations, which have a 
very direct effect on e\ery phase of our duties and responsibilities. Our standards 
and design jjractice are nece.<saril>' changed to some e.\tent because of the substitu- 
tion of non-critical materials for those which are needed in the conduct of the war. 

We have been, and still are, experiencing the effect of a rapidly depleting engineer- 
ing personnel because of the requirements of manpower for the Army and the Navy, 
and because of the bett<>r opiwrtunities in other lines of endea\'or incident to the 
conduct of the war. Our C^onstruction Organization has been \'ery materially 
handicapped by delays in the issuance of priorities and matters incident to Federal 
regulations, resulting in delays in obtaining materials with which to operate. 
Our progress has, however, been in keeijing with that of former years and in some 
respects it has been outstanding. These results are attributable to the loyalty 
of this Commi.-^sion's pei-sonnel and to the comi^lete cooperation of the engineering 
firms and contractors of the State. 

CONSTRrCTION 

By Contract 

Projects awarded and placed under contract during the biennial period just 
past total $17,302, ()S(). (17 and will aggregate a total of 205 miles of new and rebuilt 
highways when completed. Of this amount, projects totalling .S3,f)4(),S91.30 have 
been awarded as State projects and without Federal participation. Contracts 
amounting to 85,445,338.46, in which Federal funds have participated in varying 
percentages of the total, have been jjlaced under contract and funcLs totalling 
$958,342.53 have been allocated and used in the counties for secondary highway 
construction. The remainder, 87,252,108.38, have been awarded as Dcfen.-;e .Vccess 
Projects, to which the City of Baltimore contril)utes to the extent of approximately 

1

10% for work done ^^-ithin the City limits, and the State's contribution is in varying 
percentages up to approximately 25%. 

From these awards and from awards of former years, 211 miles of new and recon- 
ditioned highways have been opened for public use; 9 bridges have been recon- 
^rucTed; 7 grade separation projects have been completed; and 18 new l,ndges 

have been built. . i- .u rn^i 

The Federal Aid Funds for primary highway construction for the years 941 
1942 and 1943 amount to a total of ,12,632,497.97, and of this amount $ ,8.56,919.00 
has been placed under contract. For the same period the Federal Aid Grade Cross- 
ing Fund amounting to $715,825.20, has been allocated to the amount of 
$466,425.22, and the Federal Aid Fund for Secondary Highw-ay Construction, 
amounting to $417,599.15, has been allocated to the extent of .$72,035.00. 

sTnce the beginning of the emergency period, December 7, 1941, no Federal Funds 
from any of these sources have been allocated, and all previously approved programs 
for improvement with these funds have been cancelled. While the greater part of 
the unexpended balance of these Federal Funds, amountmg to $1,3^,543.47, would 
normally remain available until June 30, 1944, plans were, at the beginning of 
the emergencv, either completed or in the process of completion for the unexpended 
lalance, which would have made it possible to have placed all of this -^k under 
contL; at least one year in advance of the final date estabhshed by the Federal 

^''rZuLi.l report of the Chief Engineer for the years 1939 and 1940, attention 
was directed to the development of the highway system for national defense. Ihe 
War Department, through the Public Roads Administration, submitted to the State 
Roads Commi-ssion a system of highways, the location of which coincided generally 
with the primarv State system and was referred to as the "strategic net 

^n estimate of the cost of the proposed widening, strengthening and relocatmg 
program on the "strategic net" to meet the requirements for ^^tary purposes w-as 
placed at $60,000,000. The permanent value of such an improvement to the State 
af er the passing of the emergency period, was emphasized, although it was stated 
that special Federal funds would be necessary to complete such a program mthin a 
reasonable period of time and that an expansion of the engineering organization 

"tJtiLXi was directed to a program of acce^ roads for making conn^ 
tions with the Aberdeen Proving Ground, Edgewood Arsenal, and other m lita y 
reservations and army and navy manufacturing centers, w^hich was estimated to 

cost $13,000,000. , , ^. XT- I An+ofiQ-ii 

On November 19, 1941 the President approved the Defense Highway Act of 1941, 
wherebv funds were made available for the construction of access roads to manu- 
Tctui-ing plants working on Army and Navy assignments and roads to Army and 
NaTy Posts. These funds are applied only to such projects receiving the approval 
of the Army and Navy Departments. Approvals have been given from time to 
me Is the'n Lsity arose Ld since the passage of the Act, certifications to the 



Report of the State Roads Commission 3 

extent of $8,907,950.00 have been made by the Navy and $0,384,355.00 have been 
certified by the Army. Of the total amount of .$15,292,305.00, work has been 
awarded and placed under contract which will co.^t .$9,033,300.73, a part of which 
was used for the elimination of "traffic bottlenecks" in Baltimore City. Because 
of the requirements of the Defense Highway Act of 1941, which authorized the use 
of Federal Funds for access road construction, plans and specifications are prepared, 
contracts administered, and disbursements are made by or under the super\'ision 
of the Highway Department of the State, subject to the appro\-al and general 
direction of the Public Roads Administration under the Federal Works Agency. 
Therefore, of the total amount placed under contract $2,750,585.73 has been allo- 
cated for projects within the limits of Baltimore City and constructed under the 
direction of the Commission's personnel. E.xcellent cooperation has been received 
in the conduct of this work from the Department of Public Works of Baltimore City 
in the lireparation of plans and the acquisition of the rights-of-way for all of the 
work done within the City limits. 

The projects completed in the City include important connections with the out- 
lying industrial ai-eas, such as a connection with the Bethlehem-Fairfield and the 
Maryland Drydock areas from Hanover Street in BrookljTi, and by the improve- 
ments along Eastern Avenue and Erdman Avenue, provisions are made for better 
connections between the City and the manufacturing areas east and southeast of 
Baltimore. 

In the counties of the State, projects haA-e been awarded from Access Road 
Funds that will cost $6,282,715.00, which includes the continuation of Eastern 
Avenue to the Glenn L. Martin Plant and, also, the continuation of Erdman Avenue 
by way of the North Point Road into the Sparrows Point area. Before the passage 
of the Defense Highway Act, a very important access highway connection between 
Route 40, near Golden Ring, and the Glenn L. [Martin Plants, was placed under 
construction and financed by this Commission. This work included traffic inter- 
changes and highway grade separation structures at Route 40, the construction 
of a clo\-erleaf, and the underpass of the Pennsyh-ania Railroad at Eastern Avenue. 

No allocations ha^■e been made by the Federal Go\-ernment for general improve- 
ments to the strategic net, although use of the regular Federal-aid funds has been 
approved in making such improvements in two cases; namely, the rebuilding of the 
Jug Bridge and approaches and the La Plata-Lyons Corner road. 

Improvements hy WPA Facilities 

By taking advantage of the funds made available through the Work Projects 
Administration, an efficient construction organization has been built up and 
available funds have been disbursed to a very material benefit in the outlying 
sections of the State, where relief labor was available for such work. Since the 
lieginning of the emergency, the.se funds have been used almost exclusively for the 
construction and improvement of highways leading into Army Posts. 

WPA funds have l)een distributed in 14 coimties of the State, for which there has 



4 Report of the State Roads Commission 

been Federal and State participation to the extent of approximately $2,500,000 
and for which work the State Roads Commission has contributed approximately 
$660,000.00, or 26% of the total. 

Prison Labor Projects 

By the use of prison labor for the improvement of the existing highways, 57.36 
miles have been widened during the past two years, of which 31.17 miles have been 
added to the improvements on the Eastern Shore and 26.19 miles have been 
widened on the Western Shore of Maryland. Because of the reduced force of work- 
men on highway maintenance resulting from higher wages paid on the numerous 
government projects, the use of prison labor has been resorted to for use ^ main- 
tenance gangs, and provisions are being made for an extension of this policy by the 
construction of camps for housing the men in the areas too far removed from the 
penal institutions to permit daily transportation. 

Improvements to the County System- of Highways 

The Chief Engineer's report for the period between October 1, 1938 and Septem- 
ber 30 1940 referred to the Acts of 1939, which then governed the maintaining, 
constructing and reconstructing of County highways as restricting the use of the 
Lateral Gas Tax Funds for new construction on the County System. 

Under that law 50% of the Ihi gasohne tax was required to be used for construc- 
tion with the requirement that all of such completed highways would become 
a part of the State system, and under these restrictions, because of the higher 
tvpe of construction and the resulting high costs, the County was deprived of a 
considerable mileage of new lower type highways that would answer the needs ot 

the local users. j-c i ^ „■*• 

The Chief Engineer suggested, therefore, that this law be modified to permit 
the construction of the lower type road, which would after completion remain a 
part of the County highway system. This revision in the law was made by the 
Legislature of 1941, wherebv it was made optional vvith the State Roads Commis- 
sion as to which, if any, of the roads in the County program should be accepted into 
the State highwav svstem. This change permitted greater latitude in the selection 
of the projects to be improved and in the character of improvement, resulting in a 
greater mileage of improvement because of a lower construction cost per mile. 

Of the 9 counties that have elected to use the available funds in one form or an- 
other and under the direction of their o^v•n engineering departments, Frederick 
County has built 21.45 miles; Washington County has constructed 15.41 miles; 
8.46 miles have been completed in Garrett County; 6.8 miles in .\nne Arundel 
Countv; and 3.82 miles in Montgomery County. 

Baltimore Countv has used its funds for debt service and has made rather sub- 
stantial contributions toward the construction of access roads being built under 
the direction of this Commission in Baltimore County. All of the new construction 
in Carroll, Harford and Howard Counties has been done under the direction ot this 
Commission and wU become a part of the State highway system. 



Report of the State Roads Commission 5 

There are 14 counties in the State whose systems of highways are under the direc- 
tion of this Commission. They are Cecil, Kent, Queen Anne's, Talbot, Caroline, 
Dorchester, Wicomico, Somerset, Worcester, Allegany, Prince George's, St. Mary's, 
Charles, and Calvert Counties. 

By the use of State forces and the expenditiu-e of fluids allocated by law for the 
maintenance and construction of the C^ounty systems, approximately 375 miles 
ha^"e been de\-eloped as all-weather roads during the past three years by stabilizing 
with local materials. Fiu-ther impro\-ements have been made by the use of bi- 
tuminous stabilization, whereby apj^roxiniately 106 additional miles have been 
improved. The stabilization of the all-weather roads has been done at a cost as 
low as $1500 per mile, and the bituminous stabilization for a figure as low as $2800 
per mile. 

Maintenance 

The necessity for proper maintenance was never more important than at present. 
The curtailment in the purchase of automobiles, tires, gasoline and repair parts 
requires that in the operation of e\'er3' type of automotive equipment the reduction 
of wear and tear is a patriotic duty of the individual owner. It is, therefore, a 
very definite responsibility of this organization to reduce the causes of damage and 
accidents and those things common to Irighways which might be contributory to 
the wear or reduction of life of the transportation facilities that we have; and, 
furthermore, l^ecause of the restrictions in the use of materials entering into highway 
repairs, all of tho.se conditions which cause the failures of the highway surfaces, 
such as neglect in making repairs, bad drainage, and prompt removal of snow and 
ice, must be disposed of immediately, and this can be done only through constant 
super\-ision and intelligent application of corrective measures. With the curtail- 
ment of funds for maintenance, combined with the factors already enumerated, 
problems will arise for which there is no precedent and our accomplishments must 
rest upon the ingenuit.y and sound judgment of our working forces. 

Future Activities 

The procedure of the Commission with respect to new construction and main- 
tenance for the remaining period of the emergency will be contingent upon what 
form the Federal regulations will take pertaining to public improvements. Ob- 
viously, maintenance will be given first consideration with State funds that may be 
available. At the present time new projects must have the certification of the 
Army or Navy as necessary for the conduct of the war or they cannot be placed 
under contract. New work will be confined to defense access projects, or portions 
of the strategic net, until the war is o\'er. As a result, a number of projects of 
importance to the State, such as the Sand>' Hook Bridge Superstructure, the pa\ing 
of the Hagerstown Relocation, the improvement of the highway between Cumlier- 
land and Frostburg, the ^^'estminster Pike, the Baltimore-Washington Road, the 
Easton By-Pass, the impro\-ement of the highway betw-een Pocomoke and the 



6 Report of the State Roads Commission 

Virginia State Line, and others of importance m\l probably be deferred until the 
emergency period is passed. 

These important improvements constitute a tentative program of construction 
which was adopted by the Commission in 1941, and on a number of these projects 
plans have been completed and extensive work has been done toward the acquisition 
of rights-of-wav. 

Special consideration has been given the construction of a new highway between 
Baltimore and Washington. A tentative location has been adopted to the east 
of the existing road. It will pass through the Anacostia River Basin east and north- 
east of Washington, making connection with New York Avenue and East Capital 
Street, and will be so located that extensions can be made for connections with 
highways leading into Southern Maryland and to Virginia by way of the Potomac 
River Bridge. Continuing in the direction of Baltimore, the proposed route will 
pass through lands now owned by governmental agencies, such as the National 
Capital Park & Planning Commission, Greenbelt, and the Beltsville Research 
Center, and because of the location on Government properties the project as far 
north as the Jessup-Fort Meade Road will be built under the direction of the Public 
Roads Administration. Its extension to the north toward Baltimore will be de- 
signed and constructed under the direction of this Commission, and it will be so 
located south of the city that provisions can be made for any desired approaches 
which might later be adopted for use into and through Baltimore. Connections 
will be made south of the city for the proposed Patapsco River Harbor crossing 
and also with the existing Baltimore- Washington Road. It will permit satisfactory 
contact with the bv-pass from Route 40 by way of Halethorpe and Lansdowne, 
thus providing access from areas west and south of the City into the prmcipal 
manufacturing centers in the Curtis Bay Region. 

After the completion of the important Army and Navy projects which are now 
under construction, the engineering department is planning to utilize all of the 
available construction engineering personnel on prehminary engineering field work, 
on the preparation of plans and specifications, and on the acquisition of rights- 
of-way for new projects so that when the post-war period arrives with the demand 
for public works to relieve unemployment, many important projects will be avail- 
able for immediate release. 

It is the desire, in conclusion, to express the sincere appreciation of the engineenng 
personnel as a whole, to the Commission for its very earnest consideration of all 
matters pertinent to the well-being of each individual who forms a part of an en- 
thusiastic and loyal organization. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Wilson T. Ballard, 

Chief Engineer.

MAINTENANCE 

Proper maintenance can be obtained only by constant supervision on the part 
of those organized employes responsible for the maintenance of the road. 

The central office, located in Baltimore, exercises general supervision and co- 
ordinates the various maintenance actiNnties, wliich insures uniformity of methods 
and practices. 

Orgajiization 

The State, in the maintenance of its road system, is divided into six districts. 
An engineer located in each district represents the Chief Engineer and, as such, is 
responsible for all maintenance operations in his district. These engineers' offices 
are located in Salisbury, Chestertown, Laurel, Towson, Upper Marlboro, and 
Cumberland. 

Each District Engineer is assisted by a Junior Engineer, who inspects in detail, 
and exercises supervision over, maintenance work and related functions. 

Resident Maintenance Engineers are located in each county, whose duty it is 
to program and direct all maintenance acti\'ities in their respective counties. Men 
of this classification are located in Princess Anne, Snow Hill, Sali.sbury, Cambridge, 
Easton, Chestertown, Centerville, Denton, Elkton, Church\alle, Towson, West- 
minster, Gaithersl^urg, Laurel, Glen Burnie, LTpper Marlboro, Sunderland, La 
Plata, Leonardtown, Frederick, Hagerstown, Cumberland, and Oakland. 

^klaintenance operations in the State have recently been considerably curtailed 
through loss of personnel by induction to militarj' service and, also, due to the fact 
that both skilled and unskilled employes have sought employment in government 
projects at a considerable increase in salary. In some of the counties where these 
go\Trnment projects are in full swing, the maintenance forces have been reduced 
to as low as 8 or 10 men. Because of the tire rationing, some of our men have been 
unable to obtain tires and it has been necessary, under the circumstances, to 
permit some of the responsible chauffeurs to take the trucks home at night in order 
that the.y might be able to carry the men to and from work. 

The Commission has in many instances resorted to the working of prisoners on 
maintenance work. These men are transported daily from the Maryland Peni- 
tentiary located in Baltimore, the House of Correction located in Jessups, and the 
INIaryland Penal Farm located in Roxbury. In further carrying out this policy 
of using Prison Labor, this Commission has erected a camp at Elkton capable of 
housing sixty men. A camp at Leonardtown is under construction and one at 
Sunderland is being considered. The reason for these camps is that the institutions 
are located too far from the site of the work to transport the inmates daily. 

Recently, however, this Commission has increased the unskilled labor lOfi per 
hour and the skilled labor 15ff per hour, hoping not only to hold the remaining men,

but expecting a return of those working on government projects long distances from 
home, as the mileage of travelling back and forth to the job would be considerably 

cut down. „ „ rr.

It will be noted that the 1942 schedule is approximately 50% of that in 1941, 
a normal year for this type of work. Two factors are responsible for this: Eariy 
in the spring of 1942, the Commission advised the District Engineers that, due to 
the lack of anticipated revenue from gasoline tax, all maintenance operations 
would have to be curtailed in order to stay within the budget. Only those roads 
which were in absolute need of surface treatment were to be submitted to the Balti-

more office in their program. After this was done, the government, considering 
the transportation of bitumen as critical, again cut our program by 385%. It is 
feared, by this serious curtailment of surface treatment work, that if the winter 
of 1942-43 is of a severe nature, considerable damage will result, especially on the 
l^ituminpus types of pavements. 

Sig7is and Markers 

During the spring of 1941, this Commission purchased and erected 905 safe 
speed signs. These signs are erected immediately under the reflector type curve 
signs to give an additional advance warning to the motorist in order to eliminate 
the surprise element when coming into a low-speed curve. These signs are in no 
way considered legal speed signs, their purpose being to advise the motorist, by 
comparison with other curves, at what speed the curve can be negotiated with 
safety. This speed has previously been determined by studies made by an in- 
strument attached to an automobile, known as the Ball Bank Indicator. These 
signs have been erected along five of the more important routes in the State ; namely, 
Nos. 1, 40, 50, 111, and 240. Favorable comments have been received by the 
Commission because of the erection of these signs, and it is hoped that additional 
signs will be erected when conditions permit. 

The Commission has continued to render service to the travelling pubhc by 
marking the center line of all highways in the primary system. In the fall of 1940, 
for purposes of economy, the mileage so marked was reduced from 2000 miles to 
1200 miles and the center line stripe was cut dowTi from G inches to 4 inches in 
width, but public reaction to the change required that the full mileage previously 
striped contmue to be so treated. In order to conserve paint and keep expendi- 
tures within the allocated amount for this purpose, the "skip" line system was 
adopted. By this method one-half of the quantity of paint is being used with no 
serious result in the effectiveness of this type of marker. 

Prior to 1941 route markers had been installed on the main system of highways 
only. Since that time, however, the Commission ordered that all State roads should 
be properly marked with route markers and these have been erected. 

In the spring of 1941 and in accordance with the Legislative Acts of that year, 
"Cattle Crossing" signs were erected as an additional service to the motoring public 
from the viewpoint of safety. 

During the summer of 1941, because of the variance in volume and speed of 
traffic and in order to pro\dde adequate legibility to meet these conditions, the 
Commission approved the use of the new type direction and distance signs. It 
consists of an individual wood panel 8 inches by 4 feet in size for each name and 
permits the use of 6 inch letters, thus replacing the old box sign wdth the 2|-inch 
letters. 

Special signs of a larger size have been erected at many important highway 
junctions and intersections equipped with reflector buttons for nighttime visibility. 

All distance and direction signs are manufactured, painted, reclaimed and restored 
by the Southern Avenue Sign Shop. During the past two years 18,148 signs of 31

Danger Spots 

DuiinR the fall and sjjrinj!; of 1940 and 1941 a survey was made of the entire State 
System, having in mind the elimination of all physical points of danser to the motor- 
ing public, anil these tlanger points are, insofar as it is possible, bcnng disposed of 
by nominal exp(>nditures as a i)art of the normal maintenance procedure. 

Civilian Defense Aelivilies 

All efiuipnient and men in the Held forces have been organized into Road Rejiair 
Crews, and are prepareil to function in the event of an emergency under the direct 
supervision of the District Engineer in charge of each district, and the Junior 
Engineers in charge of the work in the counties, all of which is under the general 
direction of the Baltimore office, through which a complete coordination of all 
acti\-ities throughout the State is possible and by which transfers of men and 
equipment from one district to another is possible in the ev(>nt of an emergency of 
sufficient magnitude to require such action. Full cooperation is given to the State 
and Countv Directors of Ci\ilian Defense. 

Under the Go\-ernor's Proclamation of July, 1942, requesting a reduction in 
highway speeds from 50 and 55 miles to 40 miles per hour, the principal highways of 
the State were posted and later revised to comply with the Federal regulations of 
35 miles per hour.

Report of the State Roads Commission 





Rkport of the State Roads Commission 15 

The State Roads Commission maintains tlic County Road Systems in the follow- 
ing counties: Cecil, Kent, Queen Anne's, Talbot, Caroline, ]3orchester, Witiomico, 
Worcester, Somerset, Allegany, Prini'e (ieorge's, St. Mary's, Charles, and Calvert. 

Maintenance Manual 
Dining the past two years information has been compiled and a Maintenance 
Manual has been prepared which describes the effective policies of the Commission, 
as they pertain to maintenance, and the functions of the organization. The book 
also provides much useful data for the men in the field and serves as a general 
reference for those who desire to keep in touch with the maintenance procedure. 
It is of loose-leaf type, which permits deletions and in.sertions when additional 
instructions or changes in policy are issued. 

Equipment Division 

Since January, 1942 virtually no new equipment has been purchased by the 
Commission and, as a result, costly repairs have been necessary on equipment, 
which equipment in normal times would have been traded in for new units. The 
task of keeping such equipment in good concUtion is a difficult one; first, because of 
delays in recei^■ing priorities; second, because, after obtaining the necessary pri- 
orities, shipments are delayed from four to six months; and, third, because of the 
difficulty in obtaining and holding good mechanics. 

During this biennium and prior to December, 1941 the following replacements 
were made, using the trade-in values of olDSolete equipment as part of the purchase 
consideration : 

24 Passenger Cars 

41 Dump Trucks '

16 Report of the State Roads Commission 

On March 5, 1942 the garage at Marlboro was completely destroyed by fire. 
Not only was the structure a complete loss, but all of the shop equipment and small 
tools, inclusive of an electric automotive gasoline pump, a 4400-pound roller, a 
2-inch water pump, and a 25-ton truck. 

The garage was a central point for storage and repairs in the Fifth District and 
housed road equipment valued at $137,000.00. Provisions were made after some 
delay, through the efforts of the War Production Board, for certification of the 
rebuilding of the structure and the job is now under contract. 

The recommendations made by the Committee, appointed by the Governor to 
study the conservation of gasoline by the various State Departments, were im- 
mediately adopted and, after a period of one year, a saving of 25% has resulted 
therefrom. Through the activities of this department, with the cooperation of the 
several garages of the Commission in the State, 24 tons of old rubber, tires and 
tubes have been turned in to the United States Government Rubber Collection 
Campaign, and the salvage of rubber, as well as scrap metal, tin, bronze, and brass 
is being disposed of through the Government Agencies as fast as it accumulates. 

The personnel of the Equipment Division has cooperated also to its fullest 
capacity in compiling rather an extensive amount of information for Government 
Bureaus in answer to questionnaires. At least 7 departments of the Federal 
Government have requested information of this sort, although it is apparent that a 
very large part of this kind of work should be unnece.ssary because the requests of 
the several Government Agencies are duplicated. 

Outdoor Advertising Department 

The outdoor advertising department, which is charged with the enforcement and 
administration of the law on outdoor advertising on the State Highway System, 
has continued its function of issuing license and permit tags for signs or advertising 
erected in accordance with the law. Periodical inspections are made of all ad- 
vertising signs erected, and those signs erected contrary to the provision of the law 
are, after due notification to the owners, removed. 

The following is a resume of the activities of this department for the period of 

this report: 

Collection from sign permit tags issued in 1941 $9,383.88 

Collection from sign permit tags issued in 1942 10,209.58 

$19,593.46 
(Note: 5| montlis remain before year 1941-1942 issuance is complete)

Roadside Development 
The Roadside De\-cl(ipincnt Department plans antl sviper\ises the control of 
erosion by the use of \-eg(>tation, and all landscape work done inider the direction 
of this Commission, and the department has, through a splendid spirit of coopera- 
tion with the engineering personnel of the Commission and with all civic bodies 
interested in this kind of work, imjiroved public relations and demonstrated the 
value of the tnidertaking. 

Among the larger landscape erosion-control projects completed during the past 
two \-ears are the following : 

Philadelphia Road between Foy's Hill and Northeast Road— a distance of 

4.04 miles. 
Philadelphia road tietween Northeast Road and Little Elk Creek— a distance of 

4.92 miles. 
Jessups Road between Jcssups and the Baltimore-Washington Boule\-ard— a 

distance of 1.256 miles. 
Edmondson A^■enlle Extended between Baltimore City Line and Rolling Road— 

a distance of 2.339 miles. 
Martin's Philadelphia Road I'nderpass and its cut and fill area immediately 

adjacent to the Underpass. 
Martin's Road l:)etwcen the Philadelphia Road and Middle River Road— a 

cHstance of 1.784 miles. 
Martin's Eastern Avenue Cloverlcaf and its approaches — a distance of about 

one mile. 
During several years just past the value of having this work done as a part of 
the construction contract has been proven, because the usual maintenance necessary 
immediately upon the completion of a new highway is very materially reduced. 
In this work enthusiastic cooperation is received from the contractor, as it saves 
him time and money spent in keeping the slopes in shape until accepted. Plans 
for roadside de\elopment arc now an integral part of all of the larger contracts. 
Among those projects where roadside de\elopment is included as a part of the 
contracts are the following recent jDrojects: 

Chesapeake Bay Ferry Terminal at Sandy Point, A. A. Co 0.955 mjles 

La Plata toward Lyons Corner 3.204 miles 

Marbury-Pisgah Road 2.061 mi es 

Huntingtown to Prince Frederick 4.342 mdes 

Aliens Fresh to Chapel Point Road 3.909 miles 

Riverside-La Plata Road 4.957 miles 

Berlin-Ocean City Road 1-650 miles 



18 Report of the State Roads Commission 

At the present time, because of war conditions, roadside development is being 
limited to essential erosion control, conservation and maintenance. 

A post-war program for the roadside development of our highways was begun in 
March of 1942, at which time the Commission received a delegation of the Con- 
federation of Western Maryland Communities, Inc., headed by Mr. J. H. Gambrill, 
Jr., President of the Confederation. This meeting was for the purpose of seeking 
our cooperation in the working up of a master plan (to be executed after the war) 
for the development of the many ideal locations for safe, off-the-road parking areas, 
most of which afford scenic views of Western Maryland's beautiful valleys; also, 
to include the complete landscaping of our New Frederick-Hagerstown Dual 
Highway. The cooperation of the Commission was given wholeheartedly and at 
the present time our master plan is rapidly taking shape.

MATERIALS DIVISION 

During tlie period covered by tliis report, the demand on the ^Materials Division 
greatly increased and resulted in placing considerable luuden on our entire organi- 
zation. This organization also suffered from loss of personnel, as many experienced 
employes either joined the Armed Forces or accepted better paying positions with 
outside industries. This condition was further aggravated by the accelerated con- 
struction programs on liighways and structures connected with the war effort, 
together with ser\ices rendered to municipal, army and nav\' construction agencies. 

All these demands were met in an accej^table manner, despite the fact that the 
jjersonnel as of September 30, 1940 was twenty-four employes and the personnel as 
of September 30, 1942 was eighteen employes, but more significant was a total 
turnover of eighteen men which required considerable time and effort in training 
new employes. 

Due to the existing national emergency, vital materials have been diverted from 
highway work. This has necessitated research, study and modification of design 
in finding the best substitutes. 

Soils 

Studies in low cost road types and the actual construction of experimental field 
projects directed by this Department, in the recent past made it possible to meet the 
taxpayer's demand for -necessaiy highways, \nth the use of little or no critical 
materials, and in addition, effect a saving directed by the Executive Department 
in the face of decreased revenue. 

In addition to development work of this type, routine Soils Engineering has been 
carried on. Se^■en men are assigned to this phase of work, which includes soil 
surveys, soil profiles, identification of the various soil strata on proposed location, 
borrow pit samphng and testing, fill compaction control, landscaping topsoil 
sampling and testing, and special investigation and recommendations for the 
\ise of available local materials to the best advantage of economy and design. ( )ur 
Mobile Laboratory has proven indispensable on staljilization projects and fill com- 
paction control. 

Soil surveys were made on 239 miles of proposed construction. 
210 Borrow Pits were sampled and tested. 
224 Gravel Pits were sampled and tested. 
107 Agricultural soil samples were .sampled and tested. 

1 ,954 Total samples were tested by routine methods. 

General Laboratory Tests 

The testing and inspection of fabricated materials is generally divided into the 
two following classifications: Chemical and Physical. 

25 



26 



Report of the State Roads Commission 



These determinations have become increasingly compUcated not only by the 
introduction of substitute materials, but by the difficulty or impossibility of ob- 
taining Laboratory equipment and chemicals necessary for standardized tests. 

This sampling and testing is performed by ten men. In the foUomng tabulations 
it will be noted that tests were made on paint, varnish and enamel. This work was 
formerly executed by commercial laboratories, but by the addition of necessary 
equipment to perform chemical analyses in our o\ra laboratory, considerable saving 
in time and money has been effected in the performance of this work by our 
personnel.

RIGHT-OF-WAY DEPARTMENT 

The Iiight-(if-\\'ay department has, covering its operations from October I, 
1940 to September 30, 1942, in addition to having cleared the rights-of-way on the 
usual State and County Road programs, cleared all rights-of-way by the early 
fall of 1941 for the C'ommission'.s regular 1941 Federal Aid and Federal Grade 
Crossing Elimination jjrograms, which was the first time in many years that such 
Fedeial programs had been put under contract that promptly. 

In releasing the various contracts awarded din-ing the period from October 1, 
1940 to Septemlier 30, 1942, and in getting other contracts ready for subsequent 
release, there were secured by and/or handled through the Right-of-Way Depart- 
ment over 1700 indi\idual rights-of-wa>'. This department also handled, between 
October 1940 and May 1942, the consummation of approximately 1000 right-of-way 
transactions. 

Not only were the usual problems of widely varying character and tjqie en- 
countered in connection with these right-of-way acquisitions, but new problems 
de\'eloped, such as housing shortages in certain areas and priorities on building 
materials, causing the always serious problem of acquiring buildings, and especially 
homes, to become more acute; many new areas in the proximity of Government 
bases and industrial plants o\"ernight becoming potential subdivision and industrial 
land; and "denied vehicular access" and more expansive takings required by the 
construction of cloverleafs, a type of design not heretofore undertaken in Maryland. 

The full impact of the seriousness of these problems is readily understandable 
when it is considered that among the pi'ojects worked on during this period were 
the Landover, Jessup, Roothby Hill and Branchvillc Grade Cro.ssing Elimination 
projects, the East .\iDproach to Hagerstown, the West Approach to the new Ocean 
City Bridge, the Sandy Hook Bridge and its Approaches, the Semi-Cloverleaf at 
the Philadelphia Road, the Cloverleaf at the Martin Plant and the roadway con- 
necting them, Edmondson Avenue from the City Line to Rolling Road, the entire 
length of Eastern Avenue from Back River to the Martin Army Plant, and the 
North Point Road Relocation from the City I^ine to Wise Avenue, including the 
Cloverleaf at Eastern Avenue. 

Naturally, the solving of these varied problems and the acquisition of these 
rights-of-way was only made ])ossible b>' the present holding together of the trained 
personnel of this department. 

Another serious obstacle that had to be overcome was the many changes in 
design, location, etc., attributable to war conditions and controls, which disrupted 
and retarded the planned functioning of all departments. 

The delays occasioned by these changes were particularly felt by this department

30 Report of the State Roads Commission 

because the function of a right-of-way department is not only controlled by the laws 
under which it operates, the available personnel and the innumerable unpredictable 
human and other factors always encountered in right-of-way work, but the amount 
of work it can perform is primarily controlled by the output of the Engineering 
Department, the type and location of projects, the order ii> which plans become 
available, and the stability and completeness of the plans and other data with 
which it is supplied. _ 

Quite logically the work and accomplishments of any one unit are indistmguish- 
ably merged into the general activities of the whole; therefore, although the follow- 
ing listed special accomplishments ^^dll particularly improve the future operation 
of^the Right-of-Way Department, they will indirectly improve the functioning 
of the entire Commission: 

(1) the steps recently taken to permit right-of-way activities to begin at an 
earlier stage in the schedule of highway planning, 

(2) the May 1942 transfer, to the Legal Department, of the responsibility of 
consummating right-of-way transactions, and 

(3) the submission to the voters of a Constitutional Amendment permitting the 
modernization of our Condemnation Laws. 

In conclusion, it is not amiss to note that the submission to the voters by the 
Legislature of said Constitutional Amendment was primarily based upon the "High- 
way Condemnation" report of the Research Division of the Maryland Legislative 
Council, wliich report this department assisted in preparing, as was particularly 
acknowledged in said report to the Legislative Council.

PLANS AND SURVEYS DIVISION 

The work, in both field and office, of this divasion is under the supervision of a 
Senior Assistant Highway- Engineer ha\-ing the title of Engineer of Surveys. The 
office work for the preparation of plans, specifications, rights-of-way plats, and 
estimates for the construction of highway projects and related work is supervised 
by a Junior Assistant Highway Engineer, functioning as Chief Draftsman. A 
field contact man makes the necessary studies of traffic problems and supervises 
the installation and maintenance of traffic control signals; another handles the 
routine details and contacts necessaiy with the Federal authorities, public utility 
bodies, railroads and municipalities. 

Due to the exigencies of the present war situation, the work of this division dui'ing 
the latter part of the period co\'ered by this report has been confined to a large 
extent to field and office work connected with militaiy access roads and related work. 
During this biennium, because of loss of personnel due to enhstments in the armed 
forces, the draft and resignations to accept higher jmid positions with private 
corporations and war industries, the number of draftsmen has dwindled from 36 
to 15 and the number of survey parties has decreased from 11 to 5. This has made 
it increasingly difficult to produce completed plans and make final surveys with the 
speed desirable. 

Preliminary Surveys 

This di\ision obtains all the necessary field data for the preparation of plans for 
new highway jirojects, the relocating and rebuilding of existing highways, bridges 
and drainage structures, railroad and highway grade separation structures, and 
flood walls and beach pi'otection. 

Rights-of-Way 

This di-vision supplies the Rights-of-Way division with rights-of-way plats and 
stakes out in the field the areas affected. Condemnations, and other reasons in- 
cident to the acquisition of rights-of-way, necessitate the preparation of numerous 
condemnation plats and frequently involve the making of extensive property 
surveys.

Report of the State Roads Commission 



Inspections are constantly being made in connection \\ith applications for permits 
to instaU traffic control signals, and to make changes in existing signals, received 
from County and Municipal authorities. When permits are granted, further in- 
spections are made during the installation period to insure proper control. 

This division makes studies of traffic problems and during the period covered by 
this report, has prepared plans for the channelization of intersections where traffic 
has encountered serious delays due to volume of traffic or the layout of the inter- 
section.

BRIDGE DIVISION 

Scope of Work 

The Bridge Di\-isioii is responsible for the design of bridges and incidental 
structures. PreUminary work includes calculations for sizes of waterways, study 
of rainfall data and run-off data, flood water records, soil and sub-surface explora- 
tions, as well as the study of locations, economics and aesthetics of structure types. 

After a preUminary design is recommended and approved, there follows the 
completion of the final design and preparation of detail plans and specifications, 
advertisement, receipt of bids and preparation of contract documents. When 
work has commenced on a project, the di\'ision examines and approves contractor's 
drawings, such as structural steel details, reinforcing steel details, form plan details, 
erection procedure details, etc., prepares supplemental drawings and renders ad- 
visory' assistance in engineering to examine and check final quantity computations 
and surveys in order to determine the final ciuantities for payment to contractors. 

When the District Engineer's inspection indicates the necessity of repairs, or 
when so directed b>' the Chief Engineer, the Bridge Division investigates and in- 
spects existing bridges and structures. Where repairs, maintenance or corrective 
alterations are required, the necessary designs and plans are developed and the 
work executed. 

Unusual problems outside the field of bridge engineering are frequently en- 
countered. Such problems involve studies, designs and preparation of drawings 
for buildings, bulkheads, jetties, dams, ferry systems, etc. and engineering advice 
during their construction. 

This di\'ision considers all applications for moving loads in excess of the legal 
limit by special permit. Each application is carefully considered and a route 
recommended. In order to properly consider such applications, it is necessary to 
keep complete records of load capacities and current conditions of all bridges on the 
State Highway System. This is a highly important function during the war period, 
as much heavy' construction equipment is being moved between various war plants, 
and the army also frequently finds it necessary to move heavy ordnance over the 
highways. 

New bridges on the primary State Highway System are designed to support 
twenty ton trucks in conformity with the H-20 Loading of the American Associa- 
tion of State Highway Officials Standard Specifications for Highway Bridges. 
On secondary and other roads, lighter load capacities are used. 

Personnel 

The personnel of the Bridge Division consists of: 

1 Bridge Engineer 
12 Junior Assistant Bridge Engineers

Accomplishments 

During the two-year period beginning October 1, 1940, more than twenty-five 
liridge projects, ten railroad grade separation projects and thirty-two concrete box 
culverts were built or are under construction and nearing completion at this time. 

The projects are widely distributed and are of various designs and types, all as 
dictated by their specific locations and requirements. It has been necessary, in 
the design of current projects, to eliminate the use of critical materials insofar as 
possible. Timber or reinforced concrete construction has been used in many places 
where structural steel would ordinarily have been the choice. In the case of rein- 
forced concrete construction, the members have been so proportioned that the 
amount of reinforcing steel has been kept to the minimum. 

Major Projects 
Sandy Point Ferry Terminal 

Tliis division began in 1940 to study the feasibility of moving the Annapolis 
Terminal of the Chesapeake Bay Ferry System from Annapohs to Sandy Point, 
in Anne Arundel Countv. These studies indicated a marked saving in distances 
between most centers of population on the Eastern and AVestern Shores when 
compared with the Annapolis-Matapeake Route. Similar comparisons of traveling 
time and costs likewise highly favored the relocation at Sandy Point. In 1941, the 
development of designs and drawngs for the construction of the terminal at Sandy 
Point was commenced. Bids were received in April, 1942 and construction was 
commenced shortly thereafter. It is believed that the new Ferry Terminal wll 
be ready for use in the near future and it is anticipated that a much improved Ferry 
Service will result. 

Military Access Projects 

In the spring of 1941 the necessity for widening and improving roads and streets 
adjacent to Baltimore industrial areas and Maryland military establishments be- 
came urgent, as a result of the great increase in armament production and military 
activity. State and Federal officials quickly evolved a program to proA-ide im- 
provements where required and the Bridge Di^•ision commenced studies, designs 
and drawnngs for the structures iuA-olved. The projects selected generally make 
provision for improved access to Aberdeen Proving Ground, Edgewood Arsenal, 
the Glenn L. Martin and the Bethlehem Steel Company Plants, the Fairfield and 
Curtis Bay areas, and approaches to Fort George G. Meade. Included in the 
program are new Eastern Avenue bridges over Back River and Middle River, 
several cloverieafs and grade crossing eliminations, as well as extension to existing 
grade separations.

46 Report of the State Roads Commission 

Miscellaneous Projects 
Miscellaneous and incidental structural work performed by this division during 
the last biennium included repairs and maintenance to bridges, design and con- 
struction of incidental structures, as well as surveying, investigating and rating of 
existing structures of all types. 

To recapitulate, this phase of the work included: 

Bulkheads at North Beach in Calvert County, along West approach to Sine- 

puxent Bay Bridge at Ocean City. 
New roadway floors and sidewalks were designed and constructed on several 

existing structures. 
Other structures were strengthened to increase their load capacities or were 

extended to provide wider roadways. 
Plans for buildings and incidental structures prepared by other divisions were 

reviewed and checked. 
Specifications and contracts were executed and completed for the painting of 

fifteen existing steel bridges throughout the State. 
A timber wharf was constructed at Lower Marlboro for the use of the Com- 
mission forces. 
The principal electrical project was lighting the Choptank River Bridge at 

Cambridge. 
The Bridge Division is now engaged in a project for calculating military load 
capacity ratings for State and County Bridges which, when completed, will 
indicate the heaviest military vehicle that can travel safely over any bridge. 
The ratings were readily obtainable for bridges on the State Road System, 
but for County Road Bridges it was found that very little information was 
available. Engineers from the Bridge Di\asion are now surveying all County 
Bridges and collecting data required for rating the structures. This State- 
wide bridge rating survey will be of incalculable value to the Commission and 
the Military departments in planning operations and moving men and 
equipment. 

Contempl.\ted Projects 
During the period covered by this report a number of bridges and incidental 
structures have been under consideration and a considerable portion of the neces- 
sary drawings and preliminary cost estimates have been completed. In normal 
yeai-s these projects would constitute the major portion of new bridge construction 
for the succeeding two-year period. 

The Bridge Division is now developing designs and plans for an extensive con- 
struction program in the post-war period. Structures intended for construction 
in the Access Road Program and during the post-war period are as follows:

WORK PROJECTS ADMINISTRATION PROJECTS 

Through the facihtics of the ^^■ork Projects Administration and the available 
relief labor in the Counties of the State, many improvements have been made in 
the County and State Systems of Highways, and by the use of relief labor from 
Baltimore City, rather extensive improvements have been made in Baltimore, 
Harford, Cecil and Anne Arundel Counties within transportation distance of the 
City. 

A daily average of 300 men ha\e been employed on work for which this Com- 
mission's share of the cost was approximately 35% of the total, which expenditure 
was made up chiefly of the cost of materials and equipment. The remainder of the 
cost was borne by the Work Projects Administration. 

Projects completed include the following:

Activities of Strategic Importance 

In 1941 the Work Projects Administration broadened its facilities whereby larger 
indi\-idual projects of strategic importance could be constructed on the basis of at 
least 80% Federal participation, which resulted in the development of an efficient 
construction organization with modern ecjuipment, and the follomng projects 
were constructed: 

Anne Arundel County 

A 24 ft. concrete roadway with asphaltic concrete topping was developed along 
the existing Camp Meade Road from the Westport Road to Camp Meade for a

General 

The total expenditures for the WPA program, including State Roads Commission 
and WPA allocations, are approximately $2,500,000. 

While the relief labor used in AVPA work has not been considered highly- efficient, 
it has been used to advantage in this State because of the diversity in the type of 
work done and the conditions peculiar to the many projects.

PRISON LABOR PROJECTS 

To relie\e the idlonos.s of inmates in the Penal Institutions in the State, the 1937 
General Assembly authorized and directed the State Roads Commission to expend 
a sum of SIOO.OOO.OO a year for the fiscal year 1938-39; such money to be used for 
the piu'pose of emplo>nng jjrisoncrs on reconstruction and maintenance of roads. 
Subsequent General Assemblies not only continued this authorization, but in- 
creased by 100% the funds to be expended each year. 

In order to comply with the Acts as set up by the General Assemblies, this 
Commission designated an Engineer in the Baltimore office to set up, sui5er\'ise 
and bring to completion projects which would fit in with the impro\'ement program 
of this Commission. These projects consisted of correcting poor drainage, wid(>ning 
and extending drainage structures, widening of narrow pa\ement surfaces, and the 
correction of distorted cross-sections. 

Roads on which these projects ha\x' been carried on are the Grain Highway; 
the Eastern Shore Boule\ard from ]\Iatapeake to the Delaware Line; U. S. Route 
*213 from Chestertown to Wye IMills; Sections of #313 from Greensboro through 
Denton to Two Johns; the Defense Highway, U. S. Route #50 from Bladensliurg 
to Lanham. 

As a result of these projects, our maintenance of earth shoulders — one of the 
more extensive of our maintenance items — has been strikingly decreased and the 
safety factor to the traveling public, which has been built into these narrow pave- 
ments, is inestimable. 

During the fiscal year of 1941-1942, the follov\ing projects were completed by 
Prison Labor forces:

TRAFFIC DIVISION 

In the summer of 1940 the Traffic Division wtis organized to continue the vital 
studies of the High\va>' Planning Survey. Its duty is to keep current all the im- 
l)ortant phases of planning information for the use of the State Roads Commission, 
these data to be used as a guide in the modernization of the liighway system and 
for the preparation of an orderly and effective schedule of procedin-e in the im- 
provement and extension of the State highway systems. 

The plan is based on the data obtained by the exhaustive studies made of the 
ph>-sical characteristics of all public highways, complete traffic surveys, road use 
and load life studies, and full information on local and State highway financing. 
Dining the two-year period ending September 30, 1942, the regularly scheduled 
traffic, inventory and financial studies have been continued without interruption, 
even though the department has lost several of its trained personnel. This ac- 
complishment is a tribute to the industiy, interest, and loyalty of the employes. 
In the two years the following original studies have been completed and published: 
"Maiyland Highway Needs 1941-1960" — a report on the history of Maryland 
highways, physical characteristics, traffic, financing, and deficiencies with a 
five and twenty-year modernization program, and recommendations for pro- 
cedure in the rehabilitation and improvement of the State highway sj'stems. 
"^lodernizing Maryland Highways" — a pamphlet presenting briefly and con- 
cisely the conclusions and recommendations of "Maryland Highway Needs." 
The Road Life Study with tables, sur\-ivor curves and narrative — a comprehensive 
study of the life of IMaryland roads by surface types and dates of construction. 
^Maintenance Cost Studies for the years 1938 and 1939 — giving maintenance 

cost per mile by surface types for each District. 
Fiscal Study Narrative — a report on the financial operations of the State, Balti- 
more City, and the 23 counties for fiscal years ending in 1936. 
Local Road Mileage Forms — reporting mileage of county and local roads by 
types, by counties with changes including additions, abandonments and 
improvements for the years 1938, 1939, 1940 and 1941 separately. 
State Mileage Forms — reports on mileage of roads on the State highway system 
by types, giving changes and including improvements, additions to system and 
abandonments for years 1938, 1939, 1940 and 1941 separately. 
The traffic studies have been continued in order to keep these valuable data up 
to date and the procedure for the sake of economy has been streamlined. Two 
recorders are employed to make manual counts at 108 key stations so located on 
the State highway' system as to give, in conjunction with 18 photo-electric traffic 
coimters and local station counts, a complete cross section of traffic on the highway

system. The locations of the key stations and the photo-electric counters are shown 

on the accompanying maps. i , „..^ ^„m 

Traffic data obtained from the manual counts and automatic recorders aie com- 
piled and presented in useful form monthly and annually. 

From these records the State Roads Commission, department heads and the 
Public Roads Administration have been supplied mth a complete set of tables giving 
the average daily and normal peak traffic by road sections for each road of the State 
highway system'for each year from 1937 to and including 1941. These cUta have 
been of inestimable value in giving traffic volumes and trends on roads of the State 
system. More recently, four traffic tables were submitted giving comparative 
data including first nine months of 1942, monthly and accumulative changes, foi 
various periods of time and for various systems or parts of systems 

World War II has definitely affected the volume of traffic on all the luial hi^- 
ways of Maryland. This is evidenced by the ffiictuation in the volume of traffic 
recorded both manually and mechanically at strategic points on both the State and 
County highways systems, and also by the consumption of gasoline as compiled by 
the State Comptroller of the Treasury. 

During the entire year of 1941 there was consistently, month by month, a much 
greater increase in tmffic volume (6% to 24%) on the rural highways compared to 
1940 than was recorded in any other yearly increase. The increase m traffic 
olume for 1941 compared to 1940 was shghtly in excess of 10 per cent, whereas in 
other years the annual increase has averaged 5 per cent. The ^-olme -nsumpt on 
in Maryland during 1941 was over 14 per cent greater than in 1940. When the 
gasoline consumption increase is compared to the traffic volume increase it in- 
dtateTthat the travel in urban areas, particularly Baltimore City, was considerably 

''tl utrecTdei increase in highway traffic in 1941 was the basis for many 
studies which had to be made to scientifically and rationally solve the many per- 
nlexing problems which arose out of congestion and higher accident rate, 
'with the entrance of our country into the war in DecembeT 1941, there was a 
sharp increase in traffic volume and gasoline consumption which ^'^^ ^^'^''^l^l 
into January of 1942. After January, a steady decline began, month by -n h - 
both traffic volume and gasoline consumption compared to 194L This dec ine 
Lhed its peak during the summer months of 1942 when ^h^ ^raffi™^ 
25 to 35 per cent and the gasoline consumption dropped from 13 to 33 pei c^nt lo^\er 
?han the ™mmer months of 1942. The drop-of^' in gasohne consumption has never 
eal!!i that of the rural highway traffic volume because of the ^^-^^^^ 
plants in and adjacent to Baltimore City. In many ]''''-''''' ^'^l^^^'^^^^^ 
and highways feeding these war plants are now carrying more tiaffic than duiing 

^'lt^:l::r:^:c^es: Wy that the drop in traffic volume on the^l ^^ 
has been caused directly by the rationing of tires and gasohne. The e one out 
standing fact concerning rural highway traffic and related revenue that the war 



Rei'out of the State Roads Commission 63 

has brought out, aiul that is, chiring the summer months of 1942 only what is now 
termed essential trathc was recorded; therefore, our re\eiuie to the extent of over 
one-third the total is derived from tourists and non-essential traveh 

The road invcnton- data have been brought to date by the personnel of the 
department, with the assistance and cooperation of the District Engineers and the 
County Engineers of tlie respective counties. In some counties changes have been 
.so great as to make a re-inventoiy mandatory if our data are to be accurately 
maintained and the majjs u]) to date. 

All county maps ha\'c been revised so far as highways are concerned to .January 
1, 1940 and those for thirteen counties have been corrected to January 1, 1942 and 
reprinted. Reprints are made onl>- when the supply of maps of a county or counties 
is exliausted. When the su|)ply is replenished we make every effort to incorporate 
all corrections and revisions to the extent the data have been obtained. 

That the demand for our maps is great is evidenced by the fact that during the 
period covered by this report we have distributed 4,286 County General Highway 
maps, 285 State General Highway maps and 21 State tourist maps. That their 
use is widespread is demonstrated by the following distribution: 

County General State General State

State Departments 1,336 147 12 

County Departments 249 1

Federalt'ivilian Departments 699 53 1 

Corporations, companies, institutions and indi- 
viduals 1,585 69 2 

4,286 285 21 

In addition to the reports that are prepared and submitted monthly and yearly, 
numerous special reports have been prepared for Federal and State agencies. 
During the two-year period we have made a total of 75 special studies for the State 
Roads Commis.sion and the Public Roads Administration, 74 studies for traffic 
control and signahzation, 16 special turning movement counts and 10 origin and 
destination studies. 

Among the special studies and reports may be mentioned: 

Report on the feasibility of the purchase and operation of the Annapolis-Mata- 

peake Feriy by the State Roads Commission; 
Study and findings on the proposal of the Legislature to determine feasibility 
of a fern" from Point Lookout in St. Clary's County to Crisfield in Somerset

Ind aroused general interest .ithin and outside the State. This was^followed 
by a similar studv at the Sparrows Point plant of the Bethlehem Steel Company

of sigiuiliziiif!; highway intersections, channelization, or need for other devices for 
the control of traffic to afford safe expedition. 

The ten origin and destination studies were made in connection with road and 
bridge improvement and location. Among these were three at the Susquehanna 
River Bridge to determine extent and use by local vehicles and pedestrians with a 
view to determining equitable toll charges; for location and design for proposed 
bridge over Spa Creek; location and design of East on by-pass; to determine traffic 
that would be potential to a bridge over the Patuxent River between Burch and 
Benedict; and traffic potential to an extension of the Joppa Road and use of 
Taylor Avenue, Kenwood Avenue and Trump Mill Road. 

Data supplied by the Traffic Division have been used extensively by the State 
Roads Commission, the Public Roads Administration, the Executive Department, 
the M&ryland Legislati\-e Council, the Marj^and Traffic Safety Committee, Mary- 
land State Police, the Office of Civilian Defense, the counties. Public Service 
Commission, University of Marjdand, Maryland State Planning Commission, the 
U. S. Army and Xa\->-, the Office of Defense Transportation, the National Re- 
sources Planning Board, the War Production Board, the U. S. Bureau of Ceasus, 
and many states. 

We supplied information and gave assistance in the preparation of the legisla- 
tion proposed for "Parkways, Freeways and Roadside Park Sites" and "Road- 
side Control and Highway Zoning." 

This resume of the work of the Traffic Division demonstrates the practical 
utilization of the reservior of factual information collected and ciu'rentlj' maintained. 
The availability of these data and maps was and is an important contribution to 
the solution of the highway transportation problem produced by the war. 

They ^vill be equally \-aluable in meeting the highway responsibility with reduced 
highway income and in planning for post-war highwa.v activities.

PERMITS AND PRIORITIES 

The scarcity of raw materials ami finished jjroducts, because of the demands of a 
nation at war. threatened the supply necessary for the maintaining of the Armed 
Forces of the I'nited Nations for essential war industries and civilian use. As a 
result, the Priority S>-stem has been developed from a small beginning May 31, 
1941, when Public Law 89, signed by the President, gave him the authority to 
establish priorities. Its development during the biennial period October 1, 1940 
to September 30, 1942, has been a continuous adaptation of controls to a situation 
changing with disconcerting rapidity and which will continue to change until the 
war is over. 

In the early clays of the defense program, priorities simply meant putting first 
things first. Militaiy orders were given the preference when thej' conflicted with 
ordinary civilian production. That was sufficient when military production was 
only a small part of the total national output. However, since Pearl Harbor it is 
obviously not sufficient, as direct spending for war amounts to more than all the 
rest of the combined economic activities of the Nation. 

Constant change in the priorities system is unavoidably inconvenient and some- 
times confusing to producers, manufacturers, suppliers, contractors, individuals, 
and (the writer suspects) to those charged with making the system work. There 
are a few basic implements, however, of the priorities system which have been used 
in one foi-m or another virtually from the beginning and which are likely to remain 
in use as long as priorities are necessaiy. The first of these is the jiriority rating or 
preference rating. The ratings, expressed in a continuous series from AAA to B-S, 
indicate the relative importance of various uses of materials in the war economy. 
The preference rating, in other words, is the tag on a purchase order which governs 
the place that order will take in the war economy. The priorities .system is con- 
cerned with control as well as assistance in securing materials. 

The office of Production Management (OPM), established January 7, 1941, was 
designated to direct and control a defense production program, and priority pref- 
erence rating applications and assignments of preference ratings were handled by 
Director of Priorities, Office of Production Management, E. R. Stettinius, Jr. in 
the beginning. It proved inadequate to gear the nation to the volume of production 
demanded by the President. On January 16, 1942 the OPM was abolished and 
superseded by the War Production Board under the direction of Donald M. Nelson. 

Under Priorities Regulation No. 1, which is the ba.sis of the priorities .system, a 
system was set up whereby companies can secure materials. It also specifically 
states what producers and suppliers can and cannot do under the priorities system. 
Except when otherwise specified, it governs not only all priority orders and actions, 

71 



72 Report of the State Roads Commission 

but also anv other industrial and commercial transactions, even though the ma- 
terials in question mav not have been brought under priority control. 

The first important provision of Regulation No. 1 is that all rated orders, civihan 
as well as war, must be accepted even if such acceptance ^^^ll make it impossible 
to fill or will postpone deliveries under previously accepted orders having a lower 
rating or no rating at all. <. i -f 

There are exceptions to this provision. A rated order need not be accepted, it 
doing so would make it impossible to fill orders already accepted which have an 
equal or higher rating. Nor does it have to be accepted if deUveiy on schedule 
under it would be made bv using materials already processed or within fifteen days 
of completion to fill an order bearing a rating in the A-1 series or higher. If the 
new order, however, bears an AAA rating, it cannot be refused, no matter what 
other orders or materials it might delay or use up. 

Before it becomes effective, a preference rating must have a dehvery date. 
Efficient war production means scheduling deliveries on an exact date, no earlier 
and no later than the time the product is needed. \ i t- 

An order bearing an A-l-a rating takes precedence over an order with an A-l-lv 
rating but onlv in relation to the required delive.y date. The order carr>^mg an 
A-l-a rating and deliverv date of September 15th would not be filled ahead of the 
order with the A-l-K rating and bearing a delivery date of August 15th, ordinarily. 
However if it is impossible to deUver both orders on time, the producer must 
readjust his production schedule to fill the order on September 15th, even if that 
means some delav in filling the order with the A-l-K rating. 

There are several classes of orders that are not purchase orders, but control 
orders, in connection vath the use of critical materials, namely: 

(M)' orders, often called allocation orders, which control the use and distribution 
of critical materials. In all (M) orders, it is provided that the available supply of 
material involved must, in a broad sense, be reserved to meet war orders first. 

(E) orders cover equipment instead of materials. Their primary purpose is to 
control the flow and deliverv of machine tools and cutting tools. 

(L) orders are a special type of regulation. They are used to control or stop 
production and distribution of goods not vitally essential and using critical mate- 
rials We are familiar with order L-41, which prohibits the start of unauthorized 
construction projects which use materials and equipment needed in the war program 
(S) orders are enforcement orders provided for maintaining a constant watch 
over the use of criticallv needed raw materials. 

In addition to the above controls, the Office of Production Management in 
December, 1941 was delegated by the President, by Executive Order, the authority 
granted by Congress to requisition materials necessaiy to the war program. 

The State Roads Commission is concerned mainly wth the follomng methods 
used to assign preference ratings to projects or to specific items: ^ 

Individual Preference Rating Certificates, formerly designated as PD-1 s and 
PD-3's, later superseded by PD-l-A's and PD-3-A's. These certificates are used 



Report of the State Roads Commission 73 

by the War Produrtion Board and by procurement officers of the Army, Nav>' 
and other authorized governmental agencies to assign ratings to orders for specific 
quantities of material or equipment to be used for a specific purpose. PD-l-A's 
are used on high\va>- construction projects to secure materials that were not specified 
on applications for preference ratings approved under other methods in the P-series. 
They arc also used to secure small tools and capital equipment for which items the 
State Roads Commission is not any longer allowed to extend priority assistance. 

Highway Construction Projects operate under Limited Blanket Orders in the 
P-19 series, formerly knowii as P-19-a orders, which were superseded by P-19-e 
orders October 18th, 1941 . P-19-e orders apply to materials that will be physically 
incorporated into the finished roadway or bridge. 

Maintenance materials were formerly obtained by using a Preference Rating 
Order P-22, i.ssvied September 9, 1941 and superseded by Preference Rating Order 
P-100 on December 18, 1941. They cany an A-10 rating. 

PD-l-A and P-19-e applications are submitted to the Public Roads Administra- 
tion, Washington, D. C. for approval and recommendations to the War Production 
Board for action. Our records show that the first preference rating orders P-19-a 
were received by the Commission September 17, 1941 and continued to October 27, 
1941. They were abolished and superseded by Preference Rating Orders P-19-e, 
which are still in eftect. 

Preference Rating Orders have been extended through this department to con- 
tractors' purchase orders from October 1, 1941 to October 1, 1942, as follows: 

P-19-a Series 

No. of 
Number Preference Cost of Cost of

10/1/41 to 11/7/41 14 70 $274,914.14 $65,657.85 $340,571.99 

P-19-e Series

$1,132,868.28 $310,921.12 $1,443,789.40 

When the defense program began, steel and iron were considered scarce and 
ci-itical materials. After Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, rubber, jute, hemp, 
burlap, tin, copper, lead and many other materials became scarce and critical. 
This was due to the fact that Japan soon had control of a greater part of the world's 
.'iource of supply of tin, jute, hemp and rubber. 

Finally, steel and iron were needed so badly in construction essential to the war 
program that the Wai' Production Board on April 9, 1942 issued Conservation 
Order No. L-41, which deferred all non-essential projects. This order was i-ssued by 
.1. S. Knowlson, Director of Industry on April 24, 1942. Recommendation No. 45 
by Harold L. Ickes, Petroleum Coordinator for National Defense restricted the 
I>urchase, delivery- or use of bituminous materials because enemy submarines had 
sunk such a number of our tankers as to render the petroleum products scarce. 

Due to the increased shipbuilding program and heav>' demand in construction 



74 Report of the State Roads Commission 

lumber, the War Production Board issued Conservation Order No. L-121 on May 13, 
1942, which froze the sale, shipping and delivery of this material for sixty days. 
It is still extremely difficult to obtain delivery of lumlier. 

As the war program progressed, the priorities system proved inadequate to cope 
wth the demand for materials, since the demand was greater than the available 
supply. A priority was authority to use materials, if they were available. 

It was necessary to determine the amount of raw material on hand and allocate 
it on the basis of an industry's importance to the war. This was done by direct 
allocation of certain materials and partly by the Production Requirements Plan, by 
which materials are allocated on the basis of the quarterly needs of the various 
manufacturers. This proved inadequate, mainly because it did not compel that the 
total program would be kept within ability to produce and because it didn't make 
sure some components would not be manufactured at the expense of others. 

A plan known as the Controlled Materials Plan was worked out by the War 
Production Board, with the cooperation of the Armed Services and other Govern- 
mental Procurement Agencies and Management and Labor in November, 1942. 
This plan will graduallv go into effect until July 1, 1943, when it becomes the 
only system under which controlled materials are allocated. Briefly, under this 
plan each Governmental Agency will cut its program to fit its share of the available 
supply of steel, copper and aluminum, and will di\ide its share among its manu- 
facturers so that each manufacturer ^\dll be assured of just enough material when he 
needs it to produce precisely what is asked of him. 

During the period mentioned at the beginning of this report, this department in 
addition to handling priorities issued twenty-three hundred and sixty -five hauling 
permits and sixty-one hundred and fifty-nine public utility and othei' routine per- 
mits, or a total of ejghty-fi^•e hundred and twenty-four permits.

DISTRICT No. 1 

The construction and maintenance of C'ounty and State highways in District 
No. 1 are conducted under the direction of the District Engineer. The activities 
were hv necessity limited due to the war and, prior to that, to the Defense Program. 

In Dorchester County the construction projects con.sisted of two new timber 
bridges at Hoopers Island, eliminating two old bridges that were in very critical 
shape. 




The Dual Highway Approaching Ocean City 
Because of the flat grades provisions have been made for surface drainage by the 
construction of the paved ditch in the center of the parkway. 

In Wicomico County the completion of the new street, carrying Route 13 through 
Sahsbury on an entirely different location, brought to a conclusion a ten-year effort 
to take the heavy traffic off the main residential and business section of Salisbury. 
The year 1941 saw the completion of the bridge and surfacing of a short relocation 
of a half mile on Route 13 at Leonards Mill between Salisbury and Delmar. This 
ehminated several bad curves as well as removed completely a hazard when lugh 
water occurred, as the old road was on a mill dam and the bridge was inadequate 
to take care of excessive rainfalls. 

In Somerset County the extension of the Crisfield-Westover Road, Route 413, 



78 Report of the State Roads Commission 

from Marion to Hopewell, was completed in the spring of 1942, which eliminated a 
very crooked and hazardous old road. The completion of a short relocation at 
Green Hill on Route 13 between Westover and Pocomoke cut out several very sharp 
curves that had caused many accidents. 

In Worcester County the new Sinepuxent Bay Bridge, which was completed in 
the fall of 1941, was not opened to traffic until November 16, 1942, because of the 
uncompleted approaches to the bridge. The contract for the bridge approaches 
was awarded during the summer of 1941 but not completed until the latter part of 
the year 1942. This construction consisted of two 24-ft. pavements and two bridges 
over Herring Creek. 

The activities of the State Roads Commission forces in this district have been 
restricted to mostly maintenance operations. There have been some improvements 
in the county roads from the lateral gasoline tax fund and improvements to a 
limited extent on the State Roads System from the Reconstruction Fund.

DISTRICT No. 2 

The inaintename ami construction of State and C'ovuity roads in District 2 are 
inidcr the direction of the District Engineer. 

Cecil County 

The new construction of outstanding importance in Cecil County is the comple- 
tion of the relocated Route 40 from Perryville to L:ikton, 13.74 miles in length. 

Other construction work consists of the improvement of the road between Cayot's 
Corner on Route 213 and St. Augustine, a distance of 1.93 miles; the elimination 
of the gap, 4.29 miles in length, in the State highway system between Bay View and 
Farmington; and extensive roadside development has been completed on Route 40. 

Plans are being prepared for the improvement of the road from Perryville to the 
new r. S. Xa\al Training Station at Port Deposit and the approaches to the 
Triumph Explosive Plants on the road Ijetwcen Elkton and Childs. Consideration 
is lieing gi\en to the widening of the road from Elkton to Fair Hill. 

Work is under construction for the establishment of a ferry across the canal at 
Chesapeake City because of the destruction of the War Depaitment A-ertical lift 
bridge on Route 213. This bridge was knocked down by a vessel passing through 
the canal on July 28, 1942. 

Weber's Bridge, a structure over the Pennsylvania Railroad on the road between 
Route 40 and Charlestown, is considered for replacement or rehabilitation when 
national conditions will permit. 

Kent County 

Two projects ha\e been constructed in this County; namel\% the construction of 
2.12 miles of uncompleted gap in the State highway system between :Millington 
and Chesterville, and the rebuilding of a bridge over the Kent Narrows on Route 445. 

Consideration is being given to the construction of a bridge over the Chester 
River at Crunipton between Kent and Queen Anne's Counties on Route 290. 

Queen Anne's County 
I'ncompleted gajjs in the State highway system have been constructed between 
Centrcvillc and Ruthsburg and between Price and Bridgetown, 2.15 miles and 2.31 
miles respectively, and a connection has been made between Barclay and Church 
Hill for a distance of 1.80 miles by the use of a local gravel as a surfacing. 

New impro\ements in contemplation include the construction of the Wye Island 
Bridge over Wye Narrows. 

81 



82 Report of the State Roads Commission 

Talbot County 
There has been no new construction in Talbot County. However, attention is 
directed to the necessity for the construction of the uncompleted gap between 
Matthews and Tuckahoe and the building of a new Tuckahoe bridge over the 
Choptank River, for which surveys have been made, War Department permits 
issued, and tentative plans prepared. The work has been delayed because of the 
emergency. 

Caroline County 

Several projects have been added to the State highway system in this County. 
A gap, 2.7 miles in length, between Bethlehem and Harmony, has been constructed. 
A connection has been made by way of Route 306, a distance of 4.2 miles, between 
Federalsburg and the Delaware State Line. On the road between Federalsburg and 
Bridgeville the surfacing has been widened. 

The border line road, an uncompleted gap 2.7 miles in length, l^etween Allen's 
Corner in Caroline County and Reliance in Dorchester County, was completed 
and a section of highway was surfaced between Greensboro and Burrsville. On the 
approach to the Dover Bridge in Caroline County, the original highway, which had 
settled almost to the level of the surrounding marsh areas, was raised and widened. 

When conditions permit, consideration will be given to the rebuilding of the 
Hunting Creek Bridge on a County road near Choptank. 

Maintenance 

In this district all of the County highways are maintained by the Commission, 
and in addition to 696 miles of roads to be maintained in the State system, there are 
1826 miles in the County system. 

The district is much handicapped in accomplishing the desired results in Cecil 
County, because of the inability to secure labor, which, however, has just recently 
been offset somewhat by securing the services of convict labor. Improvements in 
the form of road widening and new construction have been made in Queen Anne's 
and Caroline Counties by the use of prison labor and WPA forces. 

There is throughout the district the usual demand for better roads, and the 
suggestion is made that, because of the decrease in gasoline revenues, construction 
be drastically curtailed and the available funds used for the maintenance of the 
County roads. 

State storage garages are proposed at Elkton, Rising Sun and Cecilton to house 
equipment which, because of the shortage of space, is not under shelter. 

A two-lane highway is provided on the fill approach, with curb and gutter and 
guard rail as safety features and preventatives against scour of the earth fills. 
Sufficient width of fill is provided between curb and guard rail for sidewalk con- 
struction.

In District 3 all construction anci maintenance on the State Highway System 
is under the direction of the District Engineer, and the County Highway Systems 
are maintained under the respective County Road Boards. In Montgomery 
County new construction on the County system is under the direction of the County 
Engineering Department. New constrviction in the County Systems of Howard 
and Carroll Counties is under the direction of the District Engineer. 
During the fiscal years 1941 and 1942, there were constructed: 
7.55(> Miles of concrete highway, 2.71 miles of which were of dual construction. 
14.470 Miles of macadam highway. 
9.25fi Miles of stone base with 2 in. road mix surface.

Channelized 2 intersections. 
Drove test piles for Spa Creek Bridge. 
Started work on new Ferry Terminal at Sandy Point. 

Maixtex.\xce 

In addition to the usual maintenance operations, our forces surface-treated 
151.95 miles of State roadway and 14.95 miles of County roadw^ay in 1941, and in 
1942 tliis operation was vei->' drastically curtailed because the bituminous material 
was not available, only 47.30 miles having been surface-treated. 

The following items of extraordinary- maintenance were performed In' our main- 
tenance forces: 

Construction of ai^proximately 4,000 feet of storm sewer. 

Construction of approximately 3,000 feet of sidewalk. 

Stabilization of approximately 75,000 lineal feet of shoulders. 

Impro\-ed aUgment and vision at 3 horizontal curves. 

Improved Aasion at 4 vertical curves. 

Completed landscaping of banks in front of 4 properties.

DISTRICT No. 4 

This district, prior to Octolier 12, 1941, comprised tho counties of Baltimore, 
Harford and Cecil. Since that date, with the transfer of Cecil County to District 2, 
this district has consisted of Baltimore and Harford Counties only. 

The construction and maintenance activities on the State system are under the 
direction of the District Engineer. The maintenance of the County system of 
highways in both counties is imder the direction of the County authorities. All 
construction on the County system in Baltimore County is under the direction of 
the County engineering department. New construction in Harford Count>- is 
under the direction of the State Roads Commission. 

Storage garages and shops are located at Glyndon, Baltimore County; Kings\'illc, 
Baltimore County; and Churchville, Harford County. Storage garages in addition 
are located at Hereford, Baltimore County, and Darlington, Harford County. 

In the report of the State Roads Commission for the fiscal years of 1939-1940 a 
recommendation was made for the construction of a central office, central garages 
and shops for the district. None of this construction has been made and, because 
of the war effort, is not practical at this time. It should be borne in mind, how- 
ever, that the construction of garages and shops as recommended, will improve the 
ser\'ice to the traveling public and effect economies in the operation of the district. 

The presence in this area of a number of war industries and government camps 
contributes to the neces.sity for proper maintenance of roads and also creates a 
critical labor shortage. This has required the use of prison labor. 

Below is listed accomplishments in the different counties of the district during 
the period represented by this report : 

Cecil County — Completed (Fiscal Year 1941) 

1. Route 40— Dual highwa>' concrete surfacing from the Susquehanna River 
Bridge to Landing Lane in Elkton, including bridge over Elk Creek and reconstruc-

In District 5 the State Roads Commission not only maintains both the State 
and C'dunty Roads, but has accompHshed the following improvements to both 
Syst<>nis: 

Calvert Couxty 

State Roads 

A section between St. Leonards and Lusliy on Route 2 for a distance of 4.7 miles 
was imjjroved by reconstructing the old road, reducing the horizontal cvu'vature 
and cutting the hills off to gi^^e more sight distance and with a modern bituminous 
svu'face 22 feet in width, with 10 ft. shoulders. 

On this same route, between Huntingtown and Prince Frederick, 4.5 miles were 
rebuilt \\-ith a 22 ft. concrete svu'face and 10 ft. gra\'el shoulders. 

Due to the hea\>- trucking in connection with the construction of a Na\-al Am- 
phibious Base at Dowells near Solomons Island, Route 504 for a distance of 1.33 
miles had to be rebuilt by our forces. 

At North Beach, to protect the shore line from erosion, we have also constructed 
1191 ft. of timber bulkhead with the necessary earth backfill. 

AVe have surface-treated with tar or asphalt and adequate co\'er material 5G.3G 
miles of road. 

On Route 2 in the \-icinity of Lu.sby, there still remains approximate^' 3.3 miles 
that should be rebuilt, as the present road is absolutely unfit to carry the traffic 
that is now using it. 

County Roads 

During the period of this report, l)esides general maintenance on this .system, 
29.3 miles have been reconstructed to a grading width of between 24 to 30 feet, 
with a 16 ft. gravel surface. Four timber bridges ranging from an 18 to 24-foot 
span have been built, and 1.5 miles given a bituminous surface treatment. 

At present we are preparing to reconstruct the road running to the Davis Ship 
Yard across from Solomons at the request of, and at the expense of, the Federal 
Government.

roadway with 10 ft. gra\-el shoulders, has been constructed. Under construction at 
the present time is a continuation of the same type construction to Lyons Corner, 
a distance of 3.2 miles, which will connect with an improved highway to Baltimore 
and Washington. 

A section of gravel road connecting two previously built State Roads between 
Marbury and Pisgah, 2 miles long, has also been constructed. 

A surface treatment program totaling 82.2 miles has been completed. 

The future improvements should include the improvements to the road from 
La Plata to Indian Head and the Livingston Road from Mason Springs towards 
Washington. 




The Bulkhead at Xohth Beach in Calvert County 
Built as a protection against erosion to the highway along the shore front 

County Roads 

With our forces 23.8 miles have been improved by grading to a width between 
24-30 feet, with a 16 ft. gravel surface, and 2.2 miles have been surface-treated 
with bituminous material. Also, two timber bridges having a 20-foot span have 
been constructed. This is in addition to general maintenance.

As this County borders the District of Columbia on three-fourths of its boundaries, 
as mentioned in the previous report, the majority of it can be classed as urban rather 
than rural. Due to the overflow population from Washington, numerous sub- 
divisions have been developed, which has meant a large construction program and 
considerably more maintenance. 



Report of the State Roads Commission 95 

Under contract, the following impro\'ements have been made: 

Extension of New IlamiJshire Avenue 1.9 miles from University Lane to Avenel. 

A connecting link on Route 212, the Powder Factory Road, 2.6 miles. 

A relocation for a length of 1.35 miles, including an overpass over the Pennsyl- 
vania Railroad on Route 202 at Land(n'er. 

A relocation of the Branchville Road 1.0 miles, including an overpass over the 
B. »fc O. Railroad. This will eliminate two grade crossings — one on the County 
road and one on State Route 434. 

The comi:)letion of the relocation of University I^ane at College Park. 

Coles\-ille Road from the Baltimore- Washington Boulevard to University Drive — ■ 
0.5 mile. 

The completion of the ]\Iarlboro-Glendale Road for a distance of 1.9 miles. 

A new highway, partl.y four-lane and partly three-lane, from the Defense Highway 
to the Bowie Race Track — 1.7 miles — connecting with the road going to Bowde and 
Laurel. 

The right-of-way of the old W. B. it A. Railroad from Seat Pleasant to the De- 
fense Highway — 0.9 miles — has been utilized for the bed of a new highway. 

The road at the Peace Cross at Bladensburg has been channelized to relieve 
traffic congestion. 

The intersection of the Edmonston Road and .Jefferson Avenue — a very dangerous 
point — has been improved by widening and channelization. 

With our own forces we have constructed 3.2 miles of road from Croom to a 
Naval Airport on the Patuxent Ri\-er. 

Using prison labor forces, 19.2 miles of roads ha\'e been widened to 22 feet of 
surface by building bituminous shoulders. 

A total of 41.04 miles was surface-treated under maintenance, 10.85 miles of 
shoulders re-treated, and 1.7 miles of initial oiling has been done. 

Future construction should include the Livingston Road from Oxen Hill to the 
Charles County Line. 

County Roads 

During the past two years the following improvements have been made on 
County roads by our forces : 

30.2 miles have been graded to 30 feet with a 16-foot gravel surface. 

Four timber bridges and two metal arch bridges have been built. 

30.45 miles have been improved with a bituminous surface treatment, and 43.85 
miles have been re-treated. 

St. j\L\ry's County 
Stale Roads 

During the past two years a gravel road, 2.9 miles long, from the Three Notch 
Road to Route 5 at Loveville, has been constructed. Also, a connecting link 1.6 
miles in length has been built between Valley Lee and Beauvue. 

Due to the fact that the Navy Department requested more headroom under the 



gg Report of the State Roads Commission 

St. George's Island Bridge, it had to be rebuilt at a joint expense of the State Roads 
Commission and the Government. 

Under maintenance, 90 miles of road have been surface-treated. 

Due to the construction of the Cedar Point Naval Station, the entrre road from a 
point 1 6 miles below Hughesville in Charles County to Jarboesxalle on the Three 
Notch Road mil have to be rebuilt. Surveys have been made, plans draw-n and the 
first, two contracts advertised for bids. Rights-of-way are now benrg secured on the 
remainder. 

County Roads 

Besides general maintenance, four bridges from 10 to 24-foot span have bee 
constructed, and 31.5 miles improved by grading to a 30-foot ^^^dth mth 16-foot 
gravel surfacing. 

General 

While it is true that passenger car traffic has decreased due to tire and gas ration- 

inc it is our belief that truck traffic and vehicles owned by the Federal (government 

u^ng our highways have increased enormously. The Cram Highway U. b. 301, is 

he principal route for army convoys going north and south, and the follo.ang 

Army and Navy Bases have been constructed or are under construction m this 

District.

Naval Research Laboratory— Handle Cliffs 
Amphibious Base— Dovvells 
Naval Base— Point Patience 

The Army has also leased the entire lower part 
of the County for maneuvers.

The increase in traffic over the highways and the shortage of labor, because of the 
construction activities of the Army and Navy Departn.ents, has developed a 
maintenance problem which has been somewhat acute. The condition has been 
relieved somewhat by the use of prison labor.

County 



DISTRICT No. 6 

The construction and maintenance activities in District (5 are confined to the 
State System, with the exception of Allegany County, where the County system of 
highways is maintained under the direction of the District Engineer. The County 
authorities in Garrett, \\'ashington and Frederick Counties under their own engi- 
neering departments maintain the County systems of highways and direct new 
construction on th(> County systems. 

Alleg.\xy County 

The construction activities in Allegany County during the years of 1941 and 
1942 consisted of: 

Impro\-emi'nt to the McMuUen Highway, Route 220, by the building of 3 and 
4-foot shoulders o\-er a distance of 7.40 miles. This improvement added materially 
to the safety of the tra\eling public on this road, which provides 20 ft. of surfacing 
at least throughout the length of the ]McI\Iullen Highway. Additional shoulder 
widths were provided by maintenance forces. 

Another piece of work under construction was the strengthening of the floor 
system on what is known as the Pinto Bridge, leading to U. S. Ordnance Plant in 
West Mrginia. 

The remaining job done by contract was the cleaning and painting of three bridges 
in Allegany County; namely, the Henderson Boulevard Bridge, Blue Bridge and the 
Paw Paw Bridge. This concluded the construction activities for the years 1941 
and 1942. 

The County with its o\\'n forces completed the improvement by way of penetra- 
tion macadam and surface treatment of macadam and chert, comprising 13.79 
miles of road. These jobs make a v'ery good improvement to the County System. 

The County has also built three bridges on different roads during this time with 
its own forces. State and County maintenance forces ha\-e improved and rebuilt 
two bridges in the Mill Run District. 

Maintenance generally was taken care of as best we could with depletion of men 
and inability to get workers due to the war activities in the neighborhood of Cum- 
berland, which took \ip all slack labor. Regardless of this, however, some very good 
work was done. 

On Route 220 the maintenance forces extended existing pipe culverts to ac- 
commodate shovddcrs mentioned under construction. 

On the ^'ale Summit Road, Route 55, maintenance forces improved it wonder- 
fully by changing the shoulder width from 4 ft. to 10 ft. wide; thereby taking care of 
drainage and also adding to the safety of the travehng public. 

At the Celanese plant, where there has been a congestion of traffic and very 

99 



j^QQ Report of the State Roads Commission 

difficult maintenance of shoulders generally, macadam shoulders were put in which 
helped materially the movement of traffic. 

Another improvement undertaken by maintenace forces was the widenmg ot 
0.75 of a mile of road on Route 220 leading to the bridge going to the U. S. Ordnance 
Plant under construction. . 

Maintenance forces rebuilt bridges on the Watercliff Road, tliis road havmg been 
taken into the State System by the previous administration. 

Generally speaking, maintenance has suffered somewhat on account of curtail- 
ment of funds and inability to get proper personnel, but \vith it all a fairly good 
job of maintenance has been accompUshed wthin the years of 1941 and 1942. 

There were 27.32 miles of State roads oiled and 14.67 miles of County roads oiled. 

Garrett County 
Activities in the way of construction in Garrett County have, hke that in Allegany 
County been at a low ebb so far as State contracts are concerned. The only State 
contract let in Garrett County during the period 1941 and 1942 was the reconstruc- 
tion of one-half of the floor on the Deep Creek Bridge on Route 219. 

There was other construction in this County carried on from Gas Tax money by 
both the County forces and the State forces during this period, and whilst activity 
was not as great as during the years 1939 and 1940, it did show some improvement 
to the County roads. The County improved 6.55 miles of County roads and the 
State Road forces, before the roads were taken over by the County, improved 2.35 
miles of road. The County has let by contract 2.62 miles of grading which is near- 
ing completion, and this later on will be hard surfaced, this money coming from the 
Gasoline Tax. The roads in Garrett County reverted back to the County October 
1, 1941, and since that time the County authorities have been managing their o^ti 
maintenance and construction. 

In Garrett County the general run of maintenance work has been carried on and 
there is nothing unusual about this except, again, we were cautioned to keep main- 
tenance costs down and the budget was restricted to figures less than that origma ly 
set up The result was that maintenance is not in as good shape as it was previously . 

Oiling of State roads during these two years was a total of 34.90 miles and 19.^0 
miles of County roads in 1941. All oiling had to be curtailed on account of priori- 
ties, both on State and County Systems. , • u r i 

The bridge at Kitzmiller was strengthened by maintenance forces, which did 
much to help the hauling of coal from this district. 

There was one bad feature of maintenance in Garrett County. Due to tne 
hauling of mine props on the Blooming Rose Road, as well as frost action, it was 
necessary to re-surface one mile of road. 

Washington County 

In Washington Count>' we had more construction activity than in the other 
two western counties, but not quite as much as formerly. , c n 

The one big job in Washington County, which was sorely needed and finally 



Report of the State Roads Commission 101 

built, was a new bridge on the Leitersburg Road — a three-span steel structure and 
0.42 mile of 22 ft. concrete approach to same. This eliminated a very bad traffic 
hazard and met with the approval of all the tra\-eling public. 

Another big improvement was the building of a steel bridge and 1.28 miles of 
22 ft. concrete roadway just east of Hancock, which raised the National Pike out 
of the high waters and which justified itself in the flood of (3ctober, 1942. There 
was no blockading of traffic due to flood on tins occasion, which had been common in 
past floods on this particular stretch of road. 

Another small piece of construction was the resurfacing of 3.81 miles of road on the 
Middleburg Pike. 

Another impro\-ement that is about completed, and which is badly needed, is 
the bviilding of the dual highwa\- from Antietam Creek into Hagerstown, terminat- 
ing at ^^"ashington antl Franklin Streets, Washington Street being the east-bound 
lane and Franklin Street being the west-bound lane. This project is 1.05 miles long. 

The largest undertaking in Washington County was the building of a new bridge 
over the Potomac Ri\-er at Sandy Hook. The substructure of this bridge is com- 
pleted, with the exception of one pier and the one abutment, these two being on 
the ^■irginia side. The superstructure is deferred until after the war on account of 
priority on steel. This bridge when completed will ha-ve a length of 2230 ft. 

Other construction activities in this County consisted of work by the County 
forces with Gasoline Tax money, and the State Road engineers superv-ised the 
construction of these roads. The total mileage built under this item is 10 miles 
and the type is penetration macadam. 

In the way of betterments, one of the \-er\- desirable items of work undertaken 
was that of building jjassing zones on the mountains. This was more or less of an 
experiment at first, and the one built on Sideling Hill and also on South Mountain 
have ijroven this value. These passing zones average between 800 and 1000 ft. 
long and permit a three-land traffic movement. All the slowmoving traffic takes 
the right lane, going up grade, which facilitates moving of traffic on the mountains. 
More i^assing zones should be built in all four of the western mountainous counties. 

In ^^■ashington County the County road maintenance is taken care of by County 
forces and all State roads by State Road forces. Due to the war plants in the 
neighborhood of Hagerstown, this has affected the personnel and the maintenance 
is not up to the standard that has generally been the par in this County. However, 
under the circumstances I would say it is as good as could be expected under the 
conditions the work had to be done. 

During the years of 1941 and 1942 there were 44.43 miles of road oiled. Priori- 
ties on asphalt struck us in 1942, which neces-sitated the cutting down of the oiling 
schedule which is going to be reflected in State maintenance, not only in Washing- 
ton County but in all the counties — a condition to be endured for the duration. 

Frederick County 

During the year of 1942, the old Jug Bridge just east of Frederick collapsed 
and a new timber structure had to be put in on the remains of the old piers. This 



IQ2 Report of the State Roads Commission 

is of a temporary nature until the new bridge, which is now under construction, is 
completed The new bridge wU have a span of 466 ft., and m connection with 
this new bridge, the contract has already been let for the approach and this is under 
way at this time. The approach to the new bridge is practically one mile in length. 
We also built 2.40 miles of mixed-in-place macadam on a prepared base between 
Brunswick and Point of Rocks, completing a link between these two places and also 
enabling traffic to go north on Route 15, which is most serviceable for people travel- 
ing north from Brunswdck and other points in West Virginia and \^irgima. 

The other remaining contract was the rebuilding of a bridge earned out by the 
flood of September, 1941, and this was knowii as the Bruns\nck-Petersville Bridge 
spanning Little Catoctin Creek, and 750 ft. of approach of mixed-in-place macadam. 
The new bridge has a span of 30 ft. and will probably withstand all future floods. 
The other construction in which the State funds were involved was that of County 
highway improvements with Frederick County's share of the GasoUne Tax Fund 
under the direction of its omi Engineer and supervised by State Engineers. The 
total miles built in the years of 1941 and 1942 were 19.10 miles. 

In the way of betterments in this particular County, one of the outstandmg 
accomplishments was the building of the third lane on the east and west sides o 
Braddock Mountain. These, like those built in Washington County, were about 
800 to 1000 ft in length, and are outstanding accomplishments so far as trattic 
movements are concerned. They should be added to at other points along the 
National Pike to faciUtate traflfic movement. 

In the towns of Woodsboro and Middletown, maintenance forces did build some 
very necessary macadam shoulders adjacent to W.P.A. jobs that were built in these 

two towns. , , ,, j-i- 

Maintenance has been restricted by decreased budgets, but under the conditions 

I would say the maintenance is as good as could be expected, although not up to 

the standard that we would like to have. 

Oiling was cut to a minimum in 1942, due to priorities. The total oiling for the 

two years amounted to 46.70 miles, which is a low figure for this very large county. 

This lack of oiling will probably be reflected in increased mamtenance costs later 

on, but due to the necessity of saving asphalt, there was nothing that could have 

been done about it other than what was done. 



LEGAL DEPARTMENT 

EDMOND H. JOHNSON 

Special Assistant Attorneij General 



REPORT OF EDMOND H. JOHNSON 

Special Assistant Attorney General 

for the State Roads Commission 

for the Years 19411942 

The Legislative Session of 1941 which convened on January 1, 1941, requu-ed 
an unusual amount of attention and activity on the part of the writer in the 
preparation of bills, attending committee hearings, etc. on matters concerning 
the State Roads Commission. A brief summary of the more important legislation 
enacted includes the following: 

Chapter 888 relati\-e to the allocation and expenditure of the One and One-half 
Cent Lateral Road Gasoline Tax Fund. Prior thereto the construction fund (one- 
half of the proceeds from the One and One-half Cent Gasoline Tax) allocated to the 
various counties had to be expended on roads of a more expensive type which 
became a part of the State system. Recognizing the need of more roads of a lower 
construction cost, the Legislature, in enacting Chapter 888, provided that said 
construction fund might be used also for the building of a cheaper type road on 
recommendation of the County Authorities to remain in the County System. 

Chapter 850 relates to condemnation of property and applicable only to the State 
Roads Commission. This Act not only provides for the assessment of benefits, 
but substantially shortens the time within which property needed for road con- 
struction can be acquired. 

The Administration, recognizing the need for a more efficient ferry service between 
the Eastern and Western Shores of the State, advocated the purchase of the assets 
of the Claiborne- Annapolis Ferry Company and the operation of the ferry by the 
State Roads Commission. Accordingly, Chapter 856 was enacted providing for 
the issuance of bonds secured by trust indenture not to exceed 81,200,000.00 in 
amount, covering cost of acquisition of property and equipment of the Claiborne- 
Annapolis Ferry Company. This Act provided that title to the property should 
be taken in the name of the State of Maryland; the Commission to operate the ferry 
and to charge sufficient tolls to cover operating expenses and bond requirements, 
the intent being to make the project self-supporting and self-liquidating. 

By reason of reduced interest rates prevailing, it was deemed expedient to 
refund outstanding bonds of the State Roads Commission approximately 85,000,- 
000.00 in amount, and issue refunding bonds at a lower rate of interest. In addition 
it was found ad\-isable, in order to facilitate the ferry service above mentioned, to 
construct new termini at points where the water distance would be considerably 
lessened, and an outside sum of 81,000,000.00 was estimated for the cost thereof. 

105 



106 Report of the State Roads Commission 

Furthermore, certain funds were needed for construction of vital links in the strate- 
gic network of roads in the State system. Accordingly, to meet these needs Chapter 
884 was enacted authorizing the State Roads Commission to issue refunding and 
improvement bonds of said Commission in an amount not to exceed $11,000,000.00. 
Of this authorized issue there has at present been sold bonds in the amount of 
§9,000,000.00 at an interest cost to the Commission of 1.85%. 

in accordance with advanced ideas being put into effect throughout the country 
relative to what might be termed high speed roads or main arterial thoroughfares, 
certain legislation in Maryland was needed, giving the Commission additional pow- 
ers in respect to the laying out of such roadways. This was accomplished by the 
enactment of Chapters 485, 486 and 487 empowering the Commission to acquire 
certain lands other than that actually needed for road purposes in order to control 
sight distance and ingress and egress to and from said highways. 

Because of the national emergency the attention of the Commission has been 
centered on the laying out and construction of defense or commonly called "access" 
roads to the various military areas and defense plants in the State. This has tended 
to greatly increase the number of title problems, especially in congested sections. 
On one project alone, involving the relocation and widening of present roads and 
construction of new ones in the vicinity of the airplane jjlant of the Glenn L. Martin 
Company at Middle River, one hundred and seventy-nine title examinations have 
been requested to date. Likewise, this emergency has tended to increase the 
number of condemnation suits over last year. 

Under the supervision of this office nine hundred and thirty titles were examined 
during the past year by local attorneys at a total cost of $17,725.00 and the writer 
was engaged in the usual routine of advising the Commission and department heads 
on legal matters; the approving as to form and legality of construction contracts 
and bonds; the preparation of agreements, and appearing on behalf of the Com- 
mission in various Courts of the State. 

At the close of 1941 there were twenty-five condemnation cases either tried and 
determined by verdict of a jury, or were settled out of Court, or pending. 

The work of this office during the year 1942 embraced generally consultation and 
advice with the Commission and its various department heads and district engineers; 
the drafting of contracts and agreements; the approval as to form and legal suffi- 
ciency of contracts covering road and bridge construction; the collection of claims 
due the Commission and assisting in the settlement of claims of employees of the 
Commission under the Workmen's Compensation Law. 

By virtue of the Act of Congress approved November 19, 1941, entitled "An 
Act to Supplement the Federal- Aid Road Act approved July 11, 1916, as amended 
and supplemented to authorize appropriations during the National Emergency 
declared by the President on May 27, 1941, for the immediate construction of roads 
urgently needed for the National Defense and for other purposes," the Commission 
embarked upon an unprecedented construction of roads and bridges vital to the 
defense effort. Inasmuch as a large portion of this construction was within the 



Rkport of the State Roads Commission 107 



on 



City of Raltimore, and the ruhlic Roads Administrator insisted novertheles 
negotiating all projects with the State Roads Commission as principal, it became 
necessary to work out a basic agreement between the Commission and the City, 
setting forth the duties and obligations of the respective parties. It, therefore, 
became the duty of this office in conjunction with the City Solicitor to formulate 
the agreement in conformity with the legal problems involved, which, after numer- 
ous conferences, was accomplished. Moreover, a.s the work affected the railroads 
within the city, it was necessary likewise to work out agreements with them differ- 
ing from the usual grade elimination agreements. 

The construction of access and defense highways as aforesaid re<iuired abnormal 
acquisition of rights of way. Under the supervision of this office 1641 titles were 
examined dm-ing the year by local attorneys at a total cost of $32,069.25. This in 
turn resulted in an muisual amount of work in this office in passing upon questions 
of title. The Rights-of-Way Department being unable by reason of its limited 
personnel to adecjuately handle the closing transactions on this great amount of 
work (as had been the practice heretofore), and, moreover, the same being of a 
legal nature, it was suggested by the Commission that this department assume these 
duties. It being obvious that this additional work could not be undertaken by 
the Special Assistant Attorney General, except to the detriment of his regular 
duties, the Attorney General, with the consent of the Governor, appointed a Special 
Attornev in this department. On I\Iay 1, 1942, Mr. Matthew J. Mullaney was 
named in that capacity and immediately took over all closing transactions relative 
to acquisition of rights-of-way. Subsequently, Mr. Mullaney resigned in order to 
become associated with the Office of Price Administration, and he was succeeded 
by Mr. Frederick A. Puderbaugh, who has since acted in the capacity of Special 

Attornev. 

At the i-equest of the Commission, the writer attended the conference ol repre- 
sentatives from the various States on War Restrictions held in Washington, D. C. 
during the week of May 3, 1942. One object of this meeting was to attempt to 
devise ways and means of alleviating restrictions on interstate commerce, which, 
on account of dissimilarity of the laws of the various States, tended to hamper the 
free flow of materials needed for national defense. It developed that Maryland 
was one of the very few States whose law in respect to size, weight and load of motor 
vehicles was in accord with the recommendations of the conference. 

In addition to the work of this office hereinbefore referred to, the writer was fre- 
quently called upon by the District Engineers to pass upon matters pertaining to 
drainage in the various districts. Inasmuch as the solution of each case depended 
upon the facts peculiar thereto, it was necessary to visit personally each locality. 
As has been mentioned in a prior i-cport, the drainage problem is a vexatious one 
and is constantly recurring. 

In connection with the pending cases carried over from 1941, all were included 
with the exception of one case, and, moreover, there were in addition nine other 
condemnation cases either determined by a verdict of the jury or settled, leaving in 
all only three cases during the period of this report still pending.

Period October 1, 1940 to September 30, 1942 
On October 1, 1940, the beginning of the Accounting Period now under review, 
the cash balance to the credit of the Commission, in all funds and availabe for use 
in the manner dedicating the several cash balances, was $5,367,202.01. The 
receipts of the Commission, from all sources, exclusive of the proceeds of Bonds 
and Federal Grants made available for use in the construction of the Susquehanna 
and Potomac River Toll Bridges, but including the receipt of Bond Proceeds for 
the acciuisition and inirchase of the Chesapeake Bay Ferry System, and the proceeds 
of sale of Refunding and Impro\-ement Bonds, and further e.xcluding the receipt 
of Toll Income from all toll facihties of the Commission, during the biennium, 
were : 

Fiscal Year 1941 $17,477,636.24 

Fiscal Year 1942 25,973,511.57 

Total, Both Years $43,451,147.81 

The aggregate, added to the balance of cash on hand at the beginning of the 
period, October 1, 1940, amounting to $5,367,202.01, was $48,818,349.82, and 
during the biennium the total disbursements, exclusive of those funds disbursed 
directly from funds dedicated to the construction of the Susquehanna and Potomac 



118 Report of the State Roads Commission 

River Toll Bridges, but inclusive of disbursements of funds applied in the purchase 
and acquisition of the Chespeake Bay Ferry System, and for refunding Debenture 
Bonds of the Commission, but exclusive of the application or disbursement of tolls 
produced by the toll facilities, controlled and operated by the Commission, were: 

Fiscal Year 1941 $16,696,365.56 

Fiscal Year 1942 24,306,649.58 

Total, Both Years $41,003,015.14 

The total disbursements deducted from total leceipts (including the initial 
balance of cash on hand at the beginning of the Accounting Period) results in a 
cash balance at the close of the period, September 30, 1942, of $7,815,334.68, as 
shown in the Balance Sheet, and in the General Fund Statement. 

It is imperative at this point, in the discussion of the cash balance at September 
30, 1942, to further analyse it so as to disclose those portions of the cash balance 
that may not be used in discharging current obligations— those obligations that 
will mature currently or at a later date and incurred for those purposes of direct 
construction or maintenance of the road systems. The total cash balance in all 
accounts and on hand September 30, 1942, was $7,815,334.68, but certain items of 
dedicated or applied cash must be considered. They are: 

(a) Included in the total balance on hand, is the sum of $79,934.09 which is the 
unapplied balance of the proceeds of the sale of State Roads Commission of Mary- 
land Chesapeake Bay Ferry Revenue Bonds of 1941. This remainder of the total 
Bond Issue of $1,200,000 later will be transferred to the Trustee, authorized to 
control Ferry Revenues, after which it will be used for those purposes set forth 
in a Trust Indenture providing for the administration of financial transactions 
incident to the operation of the Ferry System. The remainder of Bond Proceeds 
will be used for the benefit of the Sinking Fund attaching to the Bonds, and accord- 
ing to the prescription of the Indenture, will be applied in the purchase and retire- 
ment of Bonds of this Issue. 

(b) Cash in the aggregate amount of $300,000 is included in the total. It is 
the Working Fund adA-anced by the Treasurer of Maryland and is used by the 
Commission incident to the Salary and Wage Account and for its Petty Cash Funds. 

(c) The cash balance has been further reduced to the extent of $560,990.39, 
which represents cash disbursements by the Commission, used to purchase ma- 
terials and supplies placed in stock and awaiting withdrawal for use, as required. 

(d) The total cash balance includes also a fund of $957,724.99, used as a Working 
Fund for general cash purposes. It is not especially dedicated, but is used to 
augment the Cash Position of other Funds. 

(e) Funds in the aggregate amount of $665,328.41 are also included in the total 
cash balance and are those several required sums reserved, primarily, for Debt 
Service on Bond Obligations of the Commission, as well as other special cash 
funds not available for use in direct road activities. 



Rkpoht of the State Roads Commission 119 

The aggregate amount of these deckietions, exehisive of .|5(J0,9!)0.39 (item c above) 
all of \\hich represent cash that must be applied to a particuhir collateral roatl 
purpose, is $2,002,987.49, and if the cash balance, as shown, be reduced Iw a like 
amount, a remainder of $5,812,347.19 is found to be on hand to satisfy all demands 
for cash, based on existing obhgations. 

Reference should be made to the Fund Statement of the Commission, Exhibit 
No. 7, Schetkile No. 2, "Condition of all Accounts at September 30, 1942," wherein 
it will be noted that the unpaid maturing obligations of the Commission at the 
clo.se of the year, amounts to $12,879,097.12. The expected receipts, from all 
sources, made available or authorized at the close of the fiscal year, aggregate 
$20,633,495.37. However, at September 30, 1942, the Commission was privileged 
to continue the award of contracts or to incur obligations to an extent that would 
fully utilize all of the funds made available for application to that date, with 
the possible exception of funds for new construction and if action had been taken 
with respect to the award of additional new contract.s for construction, and other 
road purposes, in the aggregate amount of $15,830,723.32, the unpaid maturing 
obligations would have been materially increased, thereby reducing the [x-rcent- 
age, or margin, of cash on hand for currently maturing obligations. 

It must be realized, of course, that these facts express a status existing at the 
close of the fiscal year, and will change each month, for as anticipated receipts are 
attained, the cash position may improve; yet consideration must be given to the 
rapidity of disbursements compared with the realization of receivables, since it is 
possible, and likelj-, that the demand for the payment of debts, will be disiMopor- 
tionate to income, resulting in a condition whereby the Commission cannot promptly 
liquidate its current obligations. 

As hereinbefore set forth, reference has been made to the j^rolDability of disbursing 
funds to such an extent a.s will entirely deplete the cash on hand. In order to 
prevent such an occurrence, it is now recommended that the Commission be proA'ided 
with a Working Fund in an amount sufficient to enable it to avoid any delay in the 
prompt satisfaction of its current obligations. It would seem from the very nature 
of the Commission's undertaking, that a reserve working fund is essential, for while 
it may be presumed that receipts from all sources each month will be sufficient to 
maintain a safe cash balance, this is not in fact always the experience, for many 
maturing obligations, arising from contract and the progress of construction work, 
may become due and payable at one time, the satisfaction of which will require 
all of the available cash on hand. Again, certain influences caused by the Com- 
mission's administrative policies may tend to exceed the normal rate of dis- 
bursements, causing a rapid diminution of cash, such as the sudden increase in 
the cost of labor; the rapid prosecution of construction programs; the discharge 
of debt service obligations. These, and other functional obligations of the Com- 
mission, are likely to cause the disbursement of cash in a manner disproportionate 
to the rate of income. 

For purposes of comparison, it is important at this time to note the obligations

priation of $1,590,000, and under P.AV.A. Docket No. 1053, established in 1935, a 
special appropriation of $1,000,000 was made available. All items of road con- 
struction, embodied in the Schedules using these two appropriations, have been 
completed and, based on costs approved by the Federal Authorities, the final Grant 
payments under each docket were $1,542,851.19 and $939,374.67, respectively. 
Both of these dockets haxe been completely closed and no additional funds are 
to be received. 

Both of the dockets hei-etofore referred to are exclusive of the appropriation of 
Federal Funds, under separate dockets, for the construction of the Susciuehanna 
and Potomac River Toll Bridges. A special reference will be made to these dockets 
later in this Report. 

Exhibit No. 2 — Schedules No. 1 and 2 — Income from Gasoline Taxes and Income 
from Commissioner of Motor Vehicles, October 1, 1940 to September 30, 1942 

While the principal sources of rectu'ring incomes to the State Roads Commission 
are derived from gasoline taxes paid by the users of automotive vehicles and the 
several forms of fees and taxes paid by this group to the Commissioner of Motor 
Vehicles for the use privileges, these sources of sustaining income have shown a 
serious decline in the last five months of the biennium covered by this Report; 
that is, from May, 1942 to September 30, 1942, due to the War Status and con- 
sequent economic restriction. 

Consideration therefore should be given to the amount of such taxes and fees 
paid, together with the use to which this income is applied.

Prior to the fiscal year 1940, a large portion of road income was diverted and 
used for general cost of Government, and an additional large percentage of total 
gross income was used for paying Debt Service on State obligations, the principal 
of which had previously been used in the development of the State System of 
roads and bridges. 

The additional sums benefitting the .share of the Commission, the Counties, 
and Baltimore City, beginning with 1940, is attributable to the determination of 
His Excellency, Governor Herbert R. O'Conor that all road incomes be applied 
to road and authorized collateral purposes and that none be diverted to other 
than road use.

Report of the State Roads Commission 



Exhibit No. 2 -Cash Receipts, by Sources 

In the Exhibit will be shown the various revenue accounts and the entry of 
cash to each during the fiscal years 1941 and 1942, and the sources from which 
this revenue was derived. It will be noted, from the Exhibit, that by far the 
largest amount of cash was obtained from the Gasoline Tax and Motor Vehicle 
use. Appropriations of Federal Funds, however, were a large contributor to total 
Income, and proceeds of State Roads Commission Bonds are accounted for. 

In summarizing the sources of income administered by the Commission during 
the past two (2) fiscal years, consideration must be given to the fact that all ot the 
monies received by the Commission cannot be applied to road construction and 
maintenance, but by the operation of existing laws, much of this aggregate amount 
is applied to other collateral purposes. ' 

The total receipts for 1941, as shown below, are $17,477,636.24, and the total 
for 1942, at $25,973,511.57. Included in the receipts of both years, is an item of 
Proceeds of Sale of State Roads Commission Refunding and Improvement Bonds 
and Proceeds of the Sale of Chesapeake Bay Ferry Revenue Bonds. A full ex- 
planation of these receipts of cash is set forth immediately after the statement of

Exhibit No. 2 Schedule No. 5— Debenture Bonds of the State Roads Commission 

of Maryland — Application of Truck License Fees and Franchise 

Taxes and $.0014 of the 2i Gasoline Tax 

In order to .«eciire the bond debt obligation.s applicable to State Roads Com- 
mission Debenture Bonds, except Bridge Revenue Bonds, and except Chesapeake 
Bay Ferry Revenue Bonds, the entire income from Truck License Fees and Fran- 
chise Taxes is segregated from other income of the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles 
and is rese^^'ed for the payment of interest and principal retirement of these 
debenture bonds. Similarly, the income produced by the application of $.0014 
to the product of the 2^ Gasoline Tax is held in its entirety, for this source of 
income is also reserved for debt service costs on the Debenture Bonds of the 
Commission . 

At the close of the fiscal year, September 30, 1940, there were outstanding 
$5,358,000 of the authorized issue of State Roads Commission of Maryland Re- 
fimding Bonds, 3%, issued at November 1, 1938, (in addition to Bridge Revenue 
Bonds), and as of this date there was on hand $495,000.00 in cash, as a Reserve 
Fund for the payment of interest and principal. 

Relying on the recommendation of the Chief Auditor of the Commission, con- 
cerning a refimding plan, and in order to take advantage of lower interest rates for 
public securities, as well as to provide additional funds for highway construction, 



^26 Report of the State Roads Commission 

provision was made to submit to the General Assembly at its Session of 1941, 
a request to obtain authority to refund outstanding bonds, and, on this recom- 
mendation, the Legislature did enact Chapter 884, by the terms of which the 
Commission was authorized to issue $11,000,000 of its Refunding and Improve- 
ment Bonds. 

At October 1, 1941, there was outstanding $4,980,000 of the total of $5,358,000 
at 3% interest, of the issue previously referred to, and on November 1, 1941, 
$389,000 of this issue became due and matured, so that on the latter date, $4,59 1 ,000 
of the bonds issued at November 1, 1938, were subject to the privilege of i-efunding 
by redemption. 

" Relying on the authority vested in the Commission by the provisions of Chapter 
884 of 1941, the Commission issued $9,000,000 of State Roads Commission of 
^laryland Refunding and Improvement Bonds, dated October 1, 1941, of which 
$1,519,000 were bid at a coupon interest rate of 2\%\ $3,436,000 with a coupon 
interest rate of 2%; and $4,045,000 with a coupon interest rate of 1|%; resulting 
in an average interest cost, based on the established schedule of annual maturities 
of 1.85%. Each of the bonds, of this issue, is in the denomination of $1,000, 
maturing according to a schedule of annual payments, over a period of fifteen 
(15) years. The average annual costs of debt service, during the life of the bonds, 
in the principal amount of $9,000,000, is approximately $690,947.50. 

The Act of 1941 provided that such part of the proceeds of the sale of the $9,- 
000,000 of bonds issued, as may be required, be applied to the redemption of 
$4,591,000 of State Roads Commission of Maryland Refunding Bonds, 3%, out- 
standing at October 1, 1941, the bonds outstanding at October 1, 1941 to be re- 
deemed, were based on a schedule of established maturities, which «-ould have 
retired the bonds at November 1, 1951. 

Using the established schedules of annual maturities attaching to the bonds 
outstanding at October 1, 1941, and a.ssuming that these bonds had not been called 
for redemption, the interest to have been paid on the bonds to November 1, 1951, 
at 3%, would have amounted to $791,190.00. The net cost of interest on the new 
bonds of the same aggregate principal amount as the bonds refunded, calculated 
over the same period of time, but at the average interest rate appl^dng to the 
entire $9,000,000 issue, will result in a saving in interest of $303,289.50, subject 
to the premium paid at redemption. 

In addition to the large savings in interest cost, attributable to refundmg, the 
Commission was able, through the issuance of $9,000,000 of bonds, to obtaua much 
needed funds for the construction of vital projects, particularly Defense Access 
Road projects, (the fund provided for this purpose from the sale of bonds being 
$4,000,000), and at the unprecedented low average interest rate of 1.85% for the 
entire issue of $9,000,000. 

At the close of the fiscal year, September 30, 1942, the prescribed cash reserve 
fund for the protection of these bonds, namely 7% of the principal of the bonds 
outstanding, or $630,000, was on hand.

of Federal Funds, the General Assembly, at its Session of 1937, enacted Chapter 356, 
which authorized the Commission to issue bonds for this P^rpose Relymg on 
thi authority, the Commission at October 1, 1938, issued $6,000,000 Series "A" 
Bridge Revenue Bonds at an interest rate of 3f %, the proceeds of .^uch wei. 
applied to the construction of the Susquehanna River and Potomac River Toll 
BHdges. This issue of bonds was secured by a Trust Indenture given to Safe 
Deposit and Trust Company of Baltimore, Trustee. , „ , -^ 

During the period of time from October 1, 1938 to June 1, 1941, the toll bridge 
crossing the S isquehanna River and the toll bridge crossmg the Potomac Rivei 
™ each constructed, and, upon completion, were open to traffic and have been 
successfully operated as toll producing facilities of the State Highway Systeim 
■ All of the $6,000,000 Series "A" Bridge Revenue Bonds were ^^sued at October 1 
1938 in denominations of $1,000 each, and all at an interest rate o 3i%. ihe 
final maturity date of the issue, predicated on a schedule of annual retirements, 

^^On^ttthef Tt-great savings would result in providing for the refunding of 
these bonds at a lower interest rate, and calling for redemption all ot the outstanding 
31% bonds, the Chief Auditor of the Commission, in April 1941 recommended a 
pi for refimding the outstanding bonds. After advertising for b-l^, on he ba- 
Ihat the bidder would name the interest rate, the Commission issued $6^00,000 
of State of Maryland Bridge Revenue Refunding Bonds at June 1 1941, and 
called for redemption the entire issue of $6,000,000 of Series "A" 3f% Bonds 
Sie Refunding Bonds sold were: At 1|% interest rate, $1,600,000; at 2J% m teres 
rate, $2,700,000; and at 2% interest rate $1,700,000. The average cost of interest 

for the entire issue was 2.08%. ., ,-r . „f tu« Konds 

As a result of the successful refunding plan, based on the ife term of the bonds 
refunded, a saving in interest cost of $1,383,437.30 was realized. n addition to 
he savings in interest and in conjunction with the refundmg plan, the amount of 
toll iLonfe then permitted to be withdrawn and used in the operatrono^^^^^ 
was increased from $50,000 to $100,000 per year, an additional sa^lng ot State 
Roads Funds of $1,000,000 during the life term of the Refunding Bonds^ ihe 
ilue of State of Maryland Bridge Revenue Refunding Bonds are secured by a 



Report of the State Roads Commission 129 

Tnist Indenture given to Safe Deposit and Trust Company of Baltimore, Trustee, 
dated June 1, 1941. 

None of the bonds of this issue shall be deemed to be a debt of the State of 
Maryland or a pledge of the faith and credit of the State of Maryland, but the 
principal of and interest on said bonds will be payable solely from gross revenues, 
after deducting from such gross revenues, $100,000 annually for certain costs of 
operation of the Susf[uehaiHia Ri\-er Toll Bridge and the Potomac River Toll 
Bridge. 

At September 30, 1942 a total of $5,696,000 of the.se bonds were outstanding, 
$304,000 having been purchased, by excess toll funds, and retired in accordance 
with the terms of the Indenture.

Exhibit No. 2 Schedule No. 7 The State Roads Commission of Maryland 
Chesapeake Bay Ferry Revenue Ih*^'} Bonds of 1941 

Rcl\ing on the authority \ested in the Commission and created by action of the 
General Assembly of Maryland at the 1941 Session, as contained in Chapter 856, 
the Commission duly advertised for bids to sell $1,200,000 of "The State Roads 
Commission of Maiyland Chesapeake Bay Ferry RcAcnue Bonds," the bidder to 
name the interest rate. Accordingly, the Commission did issue, at June 1, 1941, 
$1,200,000 of these bonds at a coupon interest rate of U%. Each of the bonds 
is dated June 1, 1941, and each is in the denomination of $1,000; the serial ma- 
turities terminate at June 1, 1956. The i.s.sue is secured and administered under 
the terms of a Trust Indenture given to the Baltimore National Bank, Trustee, 
dated June 1, 1941. 

These bonds were issued and the proceeds thereof used for the acquisition of 
certain properties of the Claiborne-Annapolis Ferry Company, so that after pur- 
chase, the Commission did maintain and operate the feriy service within the waters 
of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. 

None of tile bonds of this issue shall be deemed to be an obligation or debt of 
the State of Maryland, or a pledge of the faith and credit of the State, but the 
principal of and interest on said bonds shall be payable exclusively from (1) the 
tolls and all other revenues deri^•ed from the ferry project, except such part thereof 
as may be reciuired to jjay the cost of maintaining, repairing, and operating the 
ferry, and to pro\'ide suitable reserves therefor, including a reserve to meet exti-a- 
ordinary property loss or damage; and (2) such part of the share of the One-half 
Cent (5 (f) Gasohne Tax payable to the Commission, as shall be necessary to maintain 
at all times, in the hands of the Trustee, a cash balance which, when added to the 
net balance of tolls and revenues determined in the manner provided in (1) above, 
shall be sufficient to pay all interest requirements and principal maturities of the 
bonds falling due during the .succeeding twelve (12) months period, which tax may

not be repealed, diminished or applied to any other object until the debt represented 
bv the bonds and the interest thereon, shall be fully discharged. 

" Beginning at June 10, 1941, the Commission started and has contmued the opera- 
tion of the Chesapeake Bay Ferry Service. The toll rates established by the Com- 
mission at the beginning of operation, reduced the former rates of the Claiborne- 
Annapohs Ferry Company approximately 40%, with respect to passenger fares, 
and approximately 21% for passenger cars. . ■ . ., a^ ^t

For the fiscal year ended September 30, 1941, the sum of $8,083,524.67 was 
disbursed for the construction of new projects, inckiding reconstruction and better- 
ments, and in 1942, it was $11,062,983.32. . 

Relying on Budgetary proyisions for the fiscal years 1941 and 1942, the distri- 
bution of the Commission's oyerhead burden is not to be applied to construction 
projects, either to those projects of construction financed by direct road incomes or 
other specially appropriated funds, but must be borne exclusiyely by the Com- 
mission Therefore, the administratiye oyerhead costs of the Commission for the 
years 1941 and 1942 must be absorbed as additional cost by the Commission, and 
such costs will be reflected in the disbursements for maintaining the State 
System of roads and bridges. 

"in past years, the amount of that part of total costs for supporting the road 
organization, charged as part of Construction costs, were:

Careful consideration should be given to the information set forth in this E.xhibit, 
particularly the details thereof, which .show the cost of maintaining the roads and

* Includes Administrative Overhead. 

In the details of the cost of maintaining the State System of Roads as shown in 
this Exhibit, the classification of accounts used and the segregation of costs, by the 
several basic elements, is generally that classification adopted and recommended by 
the Committee on Uniform Accounting Procedure, of the American Association ot 
State Highway Officials, of which Committee the Chief Auditor of your Commission 
is a member. This schedule of account classifications has the approval of the 
Public Roads Administration. , r> • i 

Applying the net cost of maintaining the State System of Roads and Bridges, 
which aggregate includes the Administrative Overhead of the Commission, to the 
total mileage comprising the System at the end of each fiscal year, the resultant 
average cost per mile for maintaining the System may be expressed as follows:

The increase in the average cost per mile applicable to 1940, 1941 and 1942, is 
attributable to the budgetary provisions, concerning the distribution of Administra- 
tive Overhead. . . 

In commenting on the application of Commission's overhead, it is necessary to 
explain that prior to 1940, it was absorbed by projects under construction at a given 
time and by the Maintenance Accounts, the apportionment being made on the 
basis of the total expended for construction, by separate projects, and the total 
expended as costs of maintenance of the State System. 

It will be of interest to review the amounts charged as overhead to construction 
and the amounts absorbed through the Maintenance Account of the Commission 
during the past several vears, with the resulting percentages ot distribution, based 
on total amount of funds disbursed for all purposes (except funds concerning bond 
proceeds and the application thereof) during each fiscal year. This presention is

Rejiianing with the fiscal year 1940 and applicable as well to the fiscal years 1941 
and 1942, the budget established a definite .sum, which the Commission may charge 
to funds other than Maintenance, for depreciation. Prior to 1940 the entire cal- 
culated depreciation was charged to the two (2) groups of accounts and was con- 
siderably in excess of the maximum amounts now authorized by budgetary provi- 
sions. This statement is made to explain the apparent decreasing percent of 
overhead to total disbursements in the years 1940, 1941 and 1942.

The cash balance of the Commission on September 30, 1942 was $7,815,334.68 
including the Working Fund advanced by the Treasurer of Maryland, compared 
with 80,148,472.69 on hand the same day in 1941, and with $5,367,202.01 in 1940. 

There is shown on the Balance Sheet at September 30, 1942, under the caption 
"Current Assets", an item of $8,507,000.00 representing the amount of future funds 
to be collected as Truck License Fees and Franchise Taxes, which sum will be neces- 
sary to retire, over the life term of the bonds and according to the established 
schedule of annual maturities, the outstanding debenture bonds at September 30, 
1942, of the Issue of State Roads Commission of Maryland Refunding and Im- 
provement Bonds, of which authorized issue $8,507,000.00 were outstanding as of 
this date. This future income is pledged solely to the bonds hereinbefore described 
by title, and does not apply to $6,000,000 State of Maryland Bridge Revenue 
Refunding Bonds. 

There is likewise shown under this caption an item of $1,200,000 which represents 
the amount of future toll income to be collected through the operation of the Chesa- 
peake Bay Ferry System, this amount being necessary, over the life term of the

bonds, to retire, according to the established schedule of annual maturities, the 
outstanding obligations, at September 30, 1942, of the issue of State Roads Com- 
mission of IMaryland Chesapeake Bay Ferry Revenue Bonds, of which authorized 
issue $1,200,000.00 were outstanding as of this date. 

The item of $25,189,709.82 identified as "Authorized Provisions for the Ex- 
penditure of Funds", including Construction Work in Progress, represents the 
amount authorized for construction and other related road work, and is the aggre- 
gate of uncompleted projects and work in progress at September 30, 1942. This 
latter sum compares with an amount of $18,418,723.37 at September 30, 1941, and 
$12,742,083.41 at September 30, 1940. These amounts represent the encumbrances 
against all of the accounts, as originally entered in the Accounting Records, the 
authorization for the encumbrance having been formally approved by the State 
Roads Commission and the funds required thereunder ha^-ing been authorized for 

expenditure. 

At September 30, 1942, $13,934,038.34 of the amounts shown as "Authorized 
Provisions for the Expenditure of Funds", remained unpaid and $9,867,933.00 for 
1941, remain unpaid. ,, ■, 

In the Balance Sheet is also shown the capitalized \-alue of the road and bridge 
system and other highway facilities; lands and buildings used in highway operation; 
tiie value of road equipment, subject to adjustments for depreciation or to actual 
appraised values; and other property values. Briefly stated, these values, at 
September 30, 1942, are: 

Roads, Bridges and Grade Eliminations (completed projects) $185,392,935.69

Total $189,332,165.82 

It is understood, of course, that the value of the State System of Roads and 
Bridges is the actual cost value, undepreciated. 

Liabilities 

The Commission's accountability for all funds to be administered by it at Sep- 
tember 30, 1942, and at September 30, 1941, is shown in the Balance Sheet as 
"Revenue Accounts", $25,689,903.83 and $26,661,947.88, respectively. 

The total charges against this aggregate responsibility for the administration of 
funds and represented bv the cost value of uncompleted projects and advances for 
construction, were $17,613,578.76 in 1942, and $20,235,032.30 in 1941, so that the 
balance of funds in the cu.stodv of the Commission was $8,076,325.07 at September 



Repout of the State Roads Commission 137 

30, 1942, and $0,426,915.58 at September 30, 1941. The details of the individual 
accounts and the status of each fund are .shown in Exhibit No. 7, Schechdcs 1 and 2, 
Column 3. 

On the Balance Sheet at the close of the year, September 30, 1942, will be shown 
an item of §300,000.00, which represents an ad\-ance of funds made by the Treasurer 
of Maryland for the purpose of disljursing salaries and wages to the emplo.yes of the 
Commission. This fund is operated on the imprest system. Likewise, appearing 
on the Balance Sheet, in the capital section thereof, is shown the Commi.ssions's 
liability for retiring $8,507,000 of its Refunding and Improvement Bonds, and for 
retiring .$1,200,000 of Chesapeake Bay Ferry Revenue Bonds.

In the Balance Sheet it is shown that the citizens of Maryland, on September 30, 
1942, had invested in the Highway System of the State $189,332,1(55.82, and on 
Septemlx'r 30, 1941, $182,045,247.40. 

Exhibit No. 6— Funded Balance Sheet at September 30, 1942 

Because a number of the Commission's funds show cash overdrafts, in this 
Schedule is shown the use of funds of other accounts with credit balances, the 
latter group having contributed the equivalent of the aggi'egate overdrafts. 

Exhibit No. 7 — Schedules No. 1 and No. 2 Fund Statement, Showing Cash 
Balances in the Fund Accounts at September 30, 1942 {Schedule No. 2) and at 
September 30, 1941 (Schedule No. i), and Remaining Balances after Satisfying 
All Obligations Incident to Each Fund at the Close of Each of the Fiscal Years 

In the following comments, respecting the Fund Statement of the Commission, 
references will be made only to the status of all the accounts at September 30, 1942, 
^\-hich appear in Schedule No. 2. There is thus shown an aggregate account balance 
of cash in all the accounts of $8,070,325.07, but the total of the overexpended 
accounts is .18,415,571.70 while those accounts with credit balances aggregate 
$10,491,890.83. Similarly, there is shown in column No. 8 the amount of un- 
discharged and unsatisfied maturing obligations in the accounts, a total of 
$12,213,768.71 which, when paid, would increase the overexpenditures in the accounts 
to a total of $10,099,897.34, and would reduce the remainders in the accounts with 
credit balances to a new total of $11,902,453.70, resulting in a net deficiency balance 
of 84.137,443.64. 

Immediately following the general fund statements of the Commission, and 
presented in sixty-nine schedules, there are set forth the details of all transactions 
in connection with the administration of funds by the Commission incident to each 
County's general and construction accounts and all other accounts, and the ac- 
countability of each fund for the fiscal years. 

The respective schedules for the fund account of a County, or other account, will 
show the condition of funds on hand at the beginning of the fiscal period, October 1, 
1940, as thej' appeared in the last published report of the Commission. The 



138 Report of the State Roads Commission 

account likewise will show the receipts for the year and the sources, as well as the 
charges by individual projects, and the amount required to complete, if the project 
was in the course of completion at the close of the fiscal year. 

Exhibit No. reschedules No. 3 and No. 4 Statement Showing Cash Position of 
Each Fund at October 1, 1940; Total Receipts and Increments as Well as 
Total Charges; Balance of Cash on Hand, September 30, 1942 

These statements (Schedules No. 3 and 4 of Exhibit No. 7) similar to the Fund 
Statement, are intended to show the actual aggregate of the transactions of each 
fund account, based on the cash balance on hand at the beginning of the fiscal 
year, the total receipts into the account and the total disbursements made therefrom 
(after considering certain inter-fund transfers), and the cash balance at the close of 
the fiscal year. 

From the statement of facts set forth in Schedule No. 4 of the Exhibit, and an 
analysis of each account, the following conclusions are determined:

It is important to note that the credit balances represent the amount of cash to 
the credit of funds and that a portion of it must be used for the benefit of the over- 
expended position of County Accounts and other Accounts. At this time it is 
strongly recommended that appropriate action be taken to perfect a plan whereby 
the overdrawn positions may be eliminated by appropriate satisfaction, before the 
close of each fiscal year. Such action is indeed necessary, for this condition of 
overexpended accounts creates an undue burden on the funds of the Commission, 
requiring cash outlays which may cause it to be placed in the position of not being 
able to satisfy its current obligations. The overexpended condition of these ac- 
counts, and others, will certainly be a contributing factor. 

It is important at this time to comment specifically on the funds administered by 
the Commission through its Maintenance and Reconstruction Account. 

The revenue is derived primarily from the 2^^ Gasoline Tax and Income from 
Commissioner of Motor Vehicles. During the period from October 1, 1940 to 
September 30, 1942, the income and increments were $14,683,512.63 which, added 
to the balance on hand in this account, September 30, 1940, of $2,587,238.83, 
resulted in a gross amount of $17,270,751.46 available for expenditure during the 
period for all those projects which are proper items to be financed from this sum. 
The aggregate charges to this account in the fiscal years 1941 and 1942, were 
$14,313,114.56, and the purposes for which these expenditures were made may be 
shown concisely as:

for the satisfaction of those authorized projects financed through the Reconstruction 
Account unfinished at September 30, 1942, and for additional new work. After 
deducting the abo\-e disbursements and the amoimt required to complete work in 
progress at September 30, 1942, from the revenue account balance, there remained 
82,071,121.32 which was availal^le for additional new work, and for eciualization of 
Federal Funds. 

A Fund Statement showing cash balances in the County Lateral Accounts, tlie 
County Construction Accounts and all other Fund balances, similar to those of 
September 30, 1942, together with a statement of anticipated income to each 
account to the close of the fiscal year, is prepared and submitted to Commission 
:\Iembers at the close of each month. 

Exhibit No. S^Summary of Disbursements from Lateral Gasoline Tax, and 
Average Expenditures per Mile for Maintaining County Roads. Fiscal Years 

1941 and 1942 
At the session of the General Assembly of 1941, Chapter 888 was enacted, by the 
terms of which, the application of the Lateral Gasoline Tax apportioned to the use 
of the Counties, was prescribed. Basically this act directed that fifty percent 
(50%) of each County's share of the tax be used and applied to (a) the maintenance 
of the County System of Roads, and (b) the repair or maintenance of Streets and 
Highways within the limits of incorporated towns, in an amount authorized by 
special local laws or by direction of the Boards of County Commissioners; and the 
remaining fifty percent (50%) be applied to the construction or reconstruction 
of new lateral roads on the County Systems, including the creation of a system of 
Farm-to-Market roads. The provisions of the Act of 1941, applied to all Counties 
except certain of them, where existing legal authority applied the whole or a portion 
of the tax to Debt Service. At September 30, 1942 the Commission maintained the 
road systems of fourteen of the twenty-three counties. 



140 Report of the State Roads Commission 

In the administration of these funds for the use and benefit of the Counties, the 
Commission is estopped from applying a ratable share of its overhead burden to the 
expenditures made therefrom, because the Appropriation Act so provides, conse- 
quently, the Commission is compelled to absorb such overhead as a charge against 
its funds. 

In this Exhibit is shown expenditures of funds in the Counties and chargeable 
to the Lateral Gasoline Tax fund for maintenance of the County Systems in fourteen 
counties; payments to Incorporated Towns; payments to the Counties for the 
satisfaction of road debt service; payments made direct to those Counties who 
maintain the County Road System with a road organization directly under their 
supervision; and disbursements for other road purposes:

In this Exhibit are shown the total mileage of the State System and the miles in 
each engineering district. This table is presented in order to establish a comparison 
between the costs of maintaining roads in the several engineering districts based on 
those costs appearing as Expenses of Operation set forth in Exhibit No. 4.

Grants, at September 30, 1942 

The administration of Toll Bridge Construction Funds and Toll Bridge Revenue 
Funds, for both the Susquehanna River and Potomac River Bridges, is controlled 



Report of the State Roads Commission 1 H 

by a Trust Indpnture existing between State Roads Commission and Safe Deposit 
and Trust Company of Baltimore, Trustee, dated June 1 , 194 1 . Reference hereto- 
fore has been made (comments on Exhibit No. 2, Schedule No. 6), to the fact 
that the Bridge Revenue Bonds, originally issued for the purpose of providing funds 
for the construction of the Toll Bridges, were refunded in 1941. As a consequence 
of this refunding plan, the original Trust Indenture, entered into at October 1, 
1938, the date of issue of the original bonds, was superseded by the Indenture of 
June 1, 1941, the latter instrument embracing the administration of revenue funds 
from operation, and, because all transactions concerning the construction of both 
bridges had not been concluded, it controlled construction funds and their appli- 
cation as well. 

Susquehanna River Bridge— Construction 

Construction work on the Susquehanna River Bridge began on December 5, 1938, 
and was substantially completed July 15, 1940. The bridge was opened to traffic 
and the collection of tolls began August 28, 1940.

actually earned on admis.sable items of construction, was .11,900,576.54. The 
latter sum is the complete and final payment of Federal Funds. 

By the terms of the Trust Indenture, the remainder of funds in the Construction 
Account, upon the completion of the bridge, are to be transferred to the Sinking 
Fund and used eithei- for the purchase or the redemption of bonds outstanding. 

At September 30, 1942, the transfer of the balance of Construction Funds had 
not been made to the Sinking Fund, because several items concerning complete 
construction costs had not been disbursed. 



142 Report of the State Roads Commission 

Potomac River Bridge — Construction 

Construction work on the Potomac River Bridge began on December 27, 1938,

Similar to the Susquehanna River Bridge Construction Funds are the provisions 
of the Indenture regarding the balance of Construction Funds of the Potomac 
River Bridge. This balance is to be transferred to the Sinking Fund and used in 
the manner previously indicated. 

At September 30, 1942, the transfer of the balance of Construction Funds to the 
Sinking Fund had not been made, because all items of construction had not been 
completed, particularly the construction of a fender system for the protection of 
the main channel bridge piei's.

Rates 

The Toll Rates in effect at the Sus{niehanna River Bridge, and applied to all 
revenue transactions during the period October 1, 1940 to Januaiy 31, 1941, are 
those rates originallj' establishes! by the Commission, but at February 1, 1941,. 
certain rates were reduced and have been in effect until September 30, 1942. 
Generally applied, the reductions pertained to passenger cars and commercial 
vehicles using the bridge on a daily or commutation basis. 

The Toll Rates in effect at the Potomac River Bridge, and applied to all revenue 
transactions, are those originally established by the Commission when this bridge 
was opened to trafhc. No change has been made in the effective rates. 

Income 

The gross income from recorded transactions, calculated at the established toll 
rates prevailing during the several periods, or until September 30, 1942, were: 

Susquehanna River Potomac River Both 

Toll Bridge Toll Bridge Bridges 

October 1, 1940 to September 30, 

1941 8739,137.12 $120,057.15* $859,194.27 

October 1, 1941 to September 30, 

1942 592,170.78 176.744.40 768,915.18 

* Potomac River Bridge was opened to traffic December 15, 1940. 

The jjercent. of decrease in revenue at the SuvSquehanna River Bridge in 1942 
over 1941 was 19.889c! a^nd at the Potomac River Bridge the increase in 1942 over 
1941, was 47.22%. 

It is important to compare these results with (a) the original estimate prepared 
by Traffic Engineers concerning the anticipated incomes from this undertaking and 
(b) incomes to September 30, 1942 compared with the amounts required, under the 
Trust Indenture, for Debt Service and Operation Fund allocations. The average 
monthly incomes from })oth bridges required to attain the estimates of traffic 
volumes established by Traffic Engineers, is $47,417.00 each month during the 
second complete year of operation. The actual net monthly realization of this 



144 Report of the State Roads Commission' 

sum has been $04,070.27, a margin of $10,059.27 per month over the estimated 
traffic. 

The average monthly cost of Debt Service and Operation Fund, using the entire 
life term (20 years) of the Bonds, is approximately $39,584.00. The average 
monthly cost of Debt Service only during the next five years (1943 to 1948) will 
approximate $22,944.00. 

The Trust Indenture controlling the administration of the funds and fiscal 
matters of the Susquehanna and Potomac River Toll Bridges, compels the retention 
of toll income for the security of Debt Service in connection with the bonds, in 
the aggregate amount of (a) the amount of interest payable on the first succeeding 
interest payment date on all of the Refunding Bonds then outstanding; (b) the 
principal, if any, maturing on such interest payment date; (c) the amount of 
interest payable on the second succeeding interest payment date on all of the 
Refunding Bonds then outstanding, and (d) a reserve fund of Two Hundred and 
Fifty Thousand Dollars ($250,000). The excess, found to be on hand at the end 
of each six months period, over the aggregate of these four sums, shall be applied 
to the payment of the purchase price or the redemption price of Bonds of this Issue. 
The balance in the Sinkmg Fund at September 30, 1942, was $707,342.38. The 
aggregate amount of funds required to be reserved, at September 30, 1942, in 
accordance with the covenants of the Indenture, as prescribed above, was $567,- 
857.50, so that there was on hand and available for the purchase of bonds, $139,- 
484.88. Since June, 1941, the date of the issue of the Refunding Bonds, the 
Commission has been able to purchase and retire $304,000 of bonds of this issue, 
by the application of excess funds on hand after estabhshing the respective cash 
reserves, as required, each six months period. At September 30, 1942, the balance, 
or any part thereof, in the Construction Funds of the Bridges, estimated to be 
approximately $208,488.15, at completion of both bridges, had not been trans- 
ferred to the Sulking Fund. 

Traffic 

The total number of traffic transactions, as reported, have occurred on the 
bridges during the several periods, or until September 30, 1942, and are:

Expressed in terms of percentage, it is found that the total traffic transactions 
at the Susquehanna River Bridge in 1942 were 13% less than the 12 months of 
1941, but that the traffic transactions at the Potomac River Bridge m 1942, as 
compared with only 91 months of 1941, were 54.71% increase. 

Using the total traffic transactions at the Susquehanna River Bridge during 1942. 
of 3,215,010, it is found that an average of 8,808 per day was attained, compared

wilh a daily average of 0,589, as established by Traffic Engineers prior to the 
construction of this Bridge. Again, using the total traffic transactions at the 
Potomac River Hridge for the year 1942, of 181,445 transactions, ])ro(luces a daily 
average of 497 compared with 3G2 estimated by Traffic Engineers. 

Oper.\tion Fund 

Previously in this Report, especially in the comment section relative to Exhibit 
No. 2, Schedule Xo. 6 — "Bridge Revenue Refunding Bonds," the statement was 
made that at the date of issuing Refunding Bonds and the execution of the Trust 
Indenture, on the recommendation of the Chief Auditor of the Commission, the 
amount of funds pcrmittetl to be used and applied to satisfy certain operating costs, 
was increased from $50,000 per annimi to $100,000. The Indenture compels the 
Commission to establish an Operation Budget each year, to include all costs of 
operating the Bridges, and it has been found that the total estimated expenditure 
will aggregate about $160,000 for the fiscal year 1942. This is considerably larger 
than is the total for the preceding year, and is attributable to such additional 
obligations as War Damage Corporation Insurance; operation of the Protective 
Lighting Systems; and other causes, primarily incident to the War Status. The 
total amount of funds disbursed each year, in excess of $100,000 must, under the 
terms of the Indenture, be contributed from State Roads Commission funds. 

The balance in the Operation Fund on October 1, 1940, was $3,575.27. The 
total amoimt transferred from Toll Income during the fiscal year 1941 was $46,- 
999.97, and during the fiscal year 1942, a total of $99,999.96. There was likewise 
transferred to the Operation Fund from State Roads Commission funds during the 
two years period, the sum of $15,726.81 so that a total, during the two years period 
ended September 30, 1942, of $166,302.01 was available. Total disbursements for 
all approved charges to the Fimd, based on the limitations established by the In- 
denture, and as previously budgeted, during the two j'ears period, were $167,397.16, 
.so that at September 30, 1942, an overdraft of $1,095.15 existed in the fund. This 
amount was restored from State Roads Commission funds to the Trustee for the 
use of the Operation Fund immediately after the close of the fiscal year, Septem- 
ber 30, 1942. 

Funds Advanced by the Commission for ^Iaryland's Primary Bridge Program 

In accordance with the terms of the Trust Indenture, it is provided that whatever 
funds of the State Roads Commission, other than the allotted share of Toll Income, 
are used in connection with the Toll Bridges, may, upon the final redemption of the 
bonds outstanding, be recovered bj' the State Roads Commission from toll income. 
In Exhibit No. 1 1 , Schedule No. 7 of this report is shown the amount of State Roads 
Commission funds expended in the development of the Toll Bridge Program and 
comprehends those costs incurred in the studies and investigations made in earlier 
years of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Crossing and other projects. At September 
30, 1942, the sum of $334,859.12 may be recovered through the medium of tolls

to be collected on the Susquehanna and Potomac River Bridges, only however, 
after all bonds issued for the construction of these bridges, have been matured or 
purchased. 

General 

The Balance Sheet presented in Exhibit No. 11, Schedule Xo. 9 is that financial 
status at September 30, 1942, of Toll Bridge Accounts and transactions, resulting 
from the operation of the Bridges only from the revenue viewpoint. It does not 
include the capital sections because (a) total and complete construction costs are 
not definitely determined in connection with the Potomac River Bridge, and (b) as 
a consequence of non-completion of construction at this bridge, the absolute amount 
of capital funds contributed by the United States Government, as Grant Funds, 
cannot be determined, for the aggregate of this source of funds, may finally be more 
or less than the total originally made available to the project. At such time as 
both bridges are finallv completed, and all costs incurred in the completion have 
been properly recorded, the capitalized value of such costs and the liability of the 
Commission for the Bridge Revenue Refunding Bonds issued, will be incorporated 
in the Balance Sheet. 

All of the requirements set forth in the Trust Indenture of June 1, 1941, regarding 
the transfer of funds into the Reserve Repair Fund, the Operation Fund, and the 
Sinking Fund, have been compUed with. Likewise, and generally stated, it is 
asserted by the Commission that all of its covenants, set forth in the Indenture, 
have been fulfilled. 

Exhibit No. IZ^Chesapeake Bay Ferry System Property Purchase Fund, Being 
Proceeds of State Roads Commission of Maryland Chesapeake Bay 
Ferry Revenue Bonds, at September 30, 1942 
Previously in this report, particularly with reference to the statements made 
reo-arding Exhibit No. 2, Schedule No. 7, it was shown that the Commission was 
airthorized by Chapter 856 of the Acts of the General Assembly of 1941, to issue 
$1 200 000 of its bonds, the proceeds to be used in the purchase -of certain prop- 
erties of the Claiborne-Annapolis Ferry Company, and to redeem certain obliga- 
tions of the Ferry Company, incurred in the reduction of passenger fare toll charges. 
The Commission did issue bonds in the total amount of $1,200,000 and has applied 
the proceeds thereof to those purposes prescribed in the Act. 

All of the bonds of this issue were sold at li% coupon interest rate, together 
with a premium. The proceeds of the sale, as shown in Exhibit No. 12, were 
$1,217,302.80. The agreed purchase price for certain properties conveyed to the 
Commission by the Claiborne-Annapohs Ferry Company, was $1,020,810.00. 
Other costs, including the purchase of materials and supplies in stock, being the 
property of the former Ferry Company, and costs of issuing bonds, together 
with other costs, amounted to $89,380.62; and the obligation of the Com- 
mission to redeem passenger fare refund tickets, on toll transactions of the 



Repokt of thk State Roads Commission 147 

former Ferry Company, involved an additional outlay of $27,178.09. The total, 
incomplete tlislnirsement.-^ of proceeds from sale of bonds of this issue was, thei-e- 
fore, $1,137,308.71; so that at September 30, 1942, $79,934.09 remained in the 
hands of the Treasurer of Maryland. This latter sum will, upon compl(>te satis- 
faction of all charges incident to the acquisition of the ferry system facilities, be 
placed in the custody of the Trustee, for use of the Sinking Fund, and will later 
be ai)])lie<l in accordance with the provisions of the Trust Indenture.

Income and Oper.vtion Costs 

Due to the fact that the Commission acquired the Ferr\- System on June 10, 1941 
and began the operation of this service as of this date, comparisons of income in 
the year 1942 with 1941 have not been attempted, but the total period of operation, 
from June 10, 1941 to September 30, 1942, is presented. In the several Exhibits 
and Schedules hereby shown, the results are displa^-ed l:)y months, thus affording 
sufficient data for needed comparisons.

148 Report of the State Roads Commission 

Toll Rates and Volume of Traffic 

The Commission, at its meeting of May 20, 1941, adopted a schedule of Pas- 
senger and Vehicular Toll Rates to apply to all transactions of transportation 
between Annapolis and Matapeake, and between Matapeake and Annapolis; 
between Romancoke and Claiborne, and between Claiborne and Romancoke; all 
such scheduled rates to become effective at June 10, 1941, the day on which the 
Commission began the operation of the Ferry System. At a meeting of the Com- 
mission held June 27, 1941, a schedule of toll rates was placed in effect for all 
continuous traffic direct from Annapolis to Claiborne, via Matapeake to Roman- 
coke, adopting for this schedule the same rates used by the Claiborne-Annapolis 
Ferry Company. 

The schedule of rates established and placed in force and effect at June 10, 1941, 
reduced the rates charged by the Claiborne-Annapolis Feriy Company, to the 
extent of approximately 40% for passenger tolls, considering both single and round- 
trip rates for adults and children; and also reduced the passenger automobile rates 
approximately 21% of those rates previously charged by the Ferry Company. 

The total number of traffic transactions, as reported, have occurred on the 
Feriy System during the several periods, or until September 30, 1942, and may be 
summarized as follows: 

June 10, 1941 October 1, 1941

General 

The Balance Sheet, presented in Exhibit No. 12, Schedule No. 5, is the status at 
September 30, 1942. It contains an asset item of ca.sh in the amount of $79,934.09, 
which is the unapplied balance of cash from the sale of Revenue Bonds. This sum, 
when all items properly payable from proceeds of Bonds have been satisfied, will 
be placed in the Sinking Fund attaching to this issue of bonds, and will later be 
used to purchase bonds of this issue in the open market for the benefit of the 
Sinking Fund. 

All of the reciuirements set forth in the Trust Indenture of June 1, 1941, regarding 
the transfer of funds into the Sinking Fund and into the special account being the 
"Reserve for Renewals, Replacements, Retirement or Depreciation and Extra- 
ordinary Property Loss or Damage," have been complied with. All current obli- 
gations incurred in the operation and maintenance of the System have been cur- 
rently discharged. Likewise, and it is but generally stated, it is asserted by the 
Commission that all of its covenants, set forth in the Indenture, have been sub- 
stantially fulfilled. 



Report of the State Roads Commission 149 

Conclusion 
The aforegoing general comments and reference to the financial transactions of 
the Commission, during the period October 1, 1940 to September 30, 1942, sup- 
ported by the succession of exhibits and schedules immediately following, represent 
an accurate summary of the accountability of funds administered by your Com- 
mission, as reported to and recorded in the Accounting Department. 

This report does not contain specific recommendations for the future dexclo])- 
mcnt and impro\ement of the Accounting Department and financial procedures, 
such recommendations and proposals will continue to be made to the Commission 
IMembeis during the regvilar course of business throughout the year. 

During the biennium covered by this report, the addition of the Susciuehanna 
River Toll Bridge and Potomac River Toll Bridge to the State System, and the 
purchase and operation of the Chesapeake Bay Ferry System, have imposed a 
vast amount of executi\-e and detailed additional duties on the Accounting Depart- 
ment, not only durmg the jjeriod of construction and acciuisition of the projects, 
but during the operation period of these facilities as well, necessitating additional 
personnel in the Accounting Department, and, with respect to some few employes 
in the Accounting Department, heavily increased burden in their assignments. 

It is a .sound business precept, long established, that from the viewpoint of good, 
efficient business administration, the most secure method of controlling financial 
transactions in any organization, is by a system of internal checks and balances. 
Such a method of control was inaugurated several years ago in the Accounting 
Department. 

The assigned duties of each of the divisions of functional effort of the Accounting 
organization, have been under the direction of a Supervisor. The division of 
duties and the Supervisor assigned to each, follows: 

Supervisor of Receipts— Cashier Joseph T. Bunn 

Supeni.^or of Disbursements Irving Taylor 

Supervisor of Payrolls Henry L. Combs 

Supervisor of Distribution Lester S. Disney 

Supervisor of Inventory Accounts and Prop- 
erty Cu.stodian D. Robert Fallon 
Supervisor of General Accounts and Controls Albert S. Gordon 
Supervisor of Financial and Statistical Re- 
ports and Internal Reconciliations Joseph E. Gerick 
Your attention is now respectfully directed to all the E.xhibits, Schedules and 
Statements immediately- following, each of which has been referred to but briefly 
in the aforegoing comments. 

Respectfully submitted, 

William A. Codd, 

Chief Auditor.
